Well the plan was to go up the Hatton flight today, (21 closely spaced broad locks), but somehow we didn't!
We started out with good intent, ploughing our way through the approaches to and the main body of Leamington Spa - the channel is remarkably shallow, and I frequently found ourselves dragging the bottom in places where it looked like the bottom of the water should be further down from the top of the water than it was in practice.

Cath and I walked into the centre of Warwick for a casual look around, then headed back for some work on the boat. In practice not a huge amount was done, but a few things have managed to acquire a further layer of paint.
