We did not get as far as we had planned as we were forced to anchor (radar problem) and wait for the fog to lift. However we still made it to Dusseldorf 70 nm (140 km) going with the current.
The next day we had a easy run to Duisburg. We did the Dusseldorf / Duisburg stretch in 2 hours and 10 minutes. The same distance going up stream took 5 hours and 20 minutes.
All together we cruised the Mosel the Saar, and a little of the Rhine, 750 nm or close to 1400 km and navigated 48 locks, raising us 106 meter (approx. 330 ft) on the Mosel and about 40 meters (approx 130 ft) on the Saar
Now we have to get Le rêve ready for her winter sleep.
