Worcester by the racecourse
I should mention that all the locks were set against us and were very slow to fill so it was a very slow cruise down. After all the boats we had seen going through Droitwich at the weekend we met not a single one.
As we left the last lock we phoned ahead to the lockeeper at our only river lock of the day and confirmed that the river levels were OK. It was on with the lifejackets and we were on a river again, albeit on for a short while. We then passed our first boat of the day.
Then came the rain just as we started down the river. A particularly heavy shower as we were approaching the lock.....nothing to do but endure!!!!
There was plenty of room at the racecourse moorings, only one other boat moored there.
Total distance:9.23 miles
Average speed:2.06 mph (4.07 lock/mph)
