49 30 84 N  04 45 88 E - Le Chesne, Canal des Ardennes

Today we reached the highest point of this canal. 7 (makes it a total of plus 50 now) locks upstream and we reached our destination. It was a short trip today.
We need to prepare ourselves for tomorrow.Incredible 27 locks in just 8 km!!!  It’s downstream which normally makes the job in the locks easier.
9 o’clock Sans Peur will be parked outside Ecluse 1 tomorrow.
We will try to reach the town Rethel tomorrow. Thats means 32 locks tomorrow. Can we make it????!!! No idea. When we reach Rethel there will be some recovery time.
