Then crossing from Elba to Macineggio on Corsica then Calvi Corsica and finally Port Saint Louis du Rhone. In Port St Louis we had the masts removed and strapped to the deck.
We then headed into the Rhone River to negotiate the 12 locks Rhone locks which are all huge including the 28 meter high Bollene lock.
