Stats for 2019

Well 2019 did not really work out as we had intended. We had to keep changing our plans & we seem to have spent almost as long in the boatyard, up in the air, as actually cruising! Our bank balance has certainly taken a big hit!

We did, however, really enjoy our time on the Somme and intend to return there again. It was also nice to return to Bruges and old friends for a little R & R before returning home.


Waterways travelled:

Kanaal Gent – Oostende;        Kanaal Gent – Terneuzen;      Afleidingskanaal;      River Leie;  Grensleie;       Canal de la Deule;       Canal du Nord;      Canal de la Somme


Kilometers:              1150        

Locks:                         122         

Lifting Bridges:       7                                                       

Big rides:                   Tunnel at Ruyaulcourt – both directions without being stopped!

Engine Hours:          175

Fuel used:                  700 litres  = 4.0 l per engine hour

Boarded by the Belgian Maritime Police – but not put in the clink!

Out of the water for 4 weeks in total!

I have been boating in Europe since 2009 when I shipped Misty Morning to France. Time & life move on! Adrian, my new partner, & I bought Piedaleau in 2015 to continue and expand our European boating adventures.

  1. Hi Jenny and Adrian, we have enjoyed your adventures and sorry misadventures this year. What a year though! All well here, haven’t seen Elizabeth yet, but seeing Bernadette on Christmas Eve and whenever we can while we are down at Eagle Bay for two weeks. Not sure how things will pan out when my son and I do the Grand 80th Trip in June, but will keep you posted. Happy Christmas and a better New Year!. Xxx Annie and Tony
