BCN Challenge: Parkhead Locks

Posted by indigodream on 27 May, 2017

What a morning already! We had stayed overnight at Merry Hill and came up to Park Head this morning.

At Park Head we were No. 2 in the queue for the start, we had difficulties in the bottom lock with shutting the gate but a burst of throttle sorted that. We then had a quick trip up the locks, Park Head is stunning and fascinating. We then had to find a clue and take the obligatory photo in the tunnel narrows, note the hard working crew!

Today’s award for Valour goes to the crew of nb Giddy. As they came into the bottom lock the obstruction drifted back in so they got into the lock to find and clear it.
