Quartette has reached Toulouse

Quartette arrived in Toulouse on Friday evening 29th August on schedule and was handed over to the new crew of Bob, Andy, Nicola, John and Terry, who set out downstream on Saturday afternoon on the Canal Lateral a la Garonne towards Bordeaux. They have many miles to cover during the current week to reach Pauillac on the left bank of the Garonne Estuary where the mast will be replaced and rigged.

The canal is now expected to be slightly deeper than the Canal du Midi which provided a few challenges for QT's 1,40m "tirage d'eaux" as shown by the depth gauge when making way for a passing Dutch barge.
