Today I took my homemade boat to the canal again, not to test it this time but just to cruise. I had a tiny crowd of onlookers as I launched and forgot to start the GPS based app. Strava straight away. In total I covered around 2 miles and the mile and a half I recorded on Strava was measured at an average of 3.3 mph. This is about where I want to be in terms of speed and I have to say it was a fabulous experience to be out on the water with ducks and other boats. Land lubbers will never understand!
