• Aurore enchantee par navigation fluviale

Since Ecotroll left Lyon, she has been sailing on diesel engine during two hours only. Electric engines were used for the rest of the trip. Today, we left river Saône to enter Centre canal. Large curves of the river are replaced with narrow locks. It is sometimes amazing to sail over railways or roads! Today, 32 km and 16 locks from Chalon-sur-Saône à Saint-Léger-sur-Dheune! To sail the Bourgogne canal, we would have had to remove wind generators and radar. Going through Centre canal, Loire canal, Briare canal, and Loing canal, there is 3,50m headroom (40cm more). Also, we are saving 59 locks to reach river Seine. Stop in Paris plan from 15 to 20 May.
