After long and winding 384 km of Main river we have reached the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal. It’s 171 km long and it joins Main river with Danube not far from Kelheim. From there it’s 2410 km through 10 different countries to the Black Sea!
We really wanted to get a tow but there weren’t many boats going our direction so it was 6 days of pure rowing as it’s not allowed to sail on the canal. Super stoked to reach the Danube!
The first day rowing and sailing our wooden boat on the Main river. we passed through our first lock with some help from our friend Carol and made it to a the town Hochest where we slept on a friendly dudes boat!
