Wye Invader Two crew photo competition

Wye Invader Two has been out again for a little trip, originally planning to go up the River Wye but due to low water levels the trip was cancelled early, however the crew had time for a few photo's - which one is your favourite?

Watch out for the video on YouTube coming soon - there's an entry to Sharpness Dock that'll leave you feeling seasick!

Some family time.

I've had a Narrow Boat on the River Severn since May 2015  and this Wednesday 9th August 2017 was the first time I have been able to get some of the family down to Sharpness to have a day just messing about on the canal in Wye Invader Two. Harry, Howard and Stella left home at 7am and arrived at 10.30am and it was still raining however, by 11.30am the rain had stopped the weather improved and we spent the next 4 hours on the canal and by 3.30pm the sun was shining and an enjoyable day was had by all.

Wye Invader Two Tewkesbury>Stourport

Over the last eighteen months the crew of Wye Invader Two have filmed about half the River Severn Navigation from Tewkesbury down to Bristol. This last weekend, Saturday 29th July 2017 through to Tuesday 1st of August was set aside to film Tewkesbury to Stourport where the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal meets the River Severn.

From the Saturday to the Tuesday we travelled over 115 miles and arrived back at Sharpness at 1400hrs on Tuesday. An hour later we handed the video and photos over to Dave to edit and the video will be posted on the Wye Invader YouTube channel soon.

(Blog Editors note)

It seems we've started a photo competition between Wye Invader Two's crew as to who can take the best photo on each trip!
