We're off to Napton tomorrow via Watford locks and Braunston and it looks like we'll have to hang on to our hats. The forecast is predicting pretty strong winds over the next two days and that stretch between Braunston and Napton is pretty exposed. Apparently on Thursday when we will be traversing the Oxford canal summit it could be gusting up to 40 mph!! It's a pity the wind won't be from behind us or we could have rigged up a sail.
This I suppose will be one of the few times when I will be happy to be in Braunston tunnel. It's an ill wind . . . .
