Well we are our start point at Aldersley at the back of a queue of three. Which would be OK if 11 boats hadn't left Wolverhampton Boat Club at 0700 for their epic journey to Tipton! At least they will sort out the empty pounds.

The anticipation is over. The long awaited 2018 BCN is underway.

 

The competitors have set off at break-neck speed after months of planning.

 

The CWDF spectators watch from their devices,whilst a helicopter filmcrew hovers overhead.........

Some boat club decided it would be good to do the 21 today and head to Tipton. CRT worried about water levels on the flight.
