Wednesday - it was time to leave Windsor- after saying bon-voyage to Paul & Elaine & the boy's we moved off under a drizzly sky but by the first lock it had stopped.
In Boulters lock I challenged a skipper to a race to the next lock, he accepted my challenge readily, having two 150hp Suzuki engines strapped to the transom ensured he'd win.
Throttling back in Cliveden deep made sure the lock landing was empty of boats when we arrived at Cookham lock... in Cookham we found a 60 foot space on rings to moor in. We had lunch on the river bank before a circular walk around the village with a quick stop at The Crown for refreshment.
