Day 9 A big day for us as we were heading for Bosworth Marina and our first overnight stay, and a taste of what will be in store for when we moor our own boat here. Not a rushed day we enjoyed the pace, but did get caught behind another incredibly slow boat, having to knock out of gear to keep our distance, the wind had picked up in time for our arrival at the marina, typical! still we arrived at the water point outside and filled the tank. Two smiling people greeted us Sue and George who now own Caxton.
We turn into the marina entrance and under the bridge, and felt the full force of the wind in our faces, this could be interesting. After a couple of attempts to get alongside the pontoon (we now know the marina is big enough to pirouette with a boat) With some great boat handling in difficult conditions Martin brought the boat in safely, boat secured we were soon enjoying the great company and hospitality of Sue and George.
