We left Kegworth last Thursday as the forecast was more rain and the Soar would be in flood, mooring at the SBC at Normanton on Soar. Spent the weekend celebrating the club’s 59th birthday. Luckily the weather was fine on Monday, the Soar was out of flood but the Trent was still borderline. After discussions with Paul and Jo, nb Repent at Leisure, who we are cruising with for the next fortnight, we decided to set off towards Leicester, mooring for the night at Barrow. A quick drink in the Navigation before heading for dinner at the Hunting Lodge, then on to meet up with Ally and Marc at the Soar Bridge.
