It's a long way from Gare Loch in Scotland to Tollesbury in Essex, but Bonnie is finally home. Here she is coming down the creek with Ida and Iska. They arrived about 1.30pm. Wasn't the weather just perfect.

Bonnie and her two support boats, IDA a 44ft Nauticat and Iska (don't really know, a big motor boat with two giant engines) left Ipswich at 6.30 this morning. We are really lucky to have such great friends to help. It has turned into a bit of a boy's own adventure with 14 men on the trip. But the great thing is that they are all experienced sailors/bargemen. Good luck boys, see you about 12.30, the champagne is on ice and the barrel of ale in the cellar!
