To celebrate the reopening of both Lowlands canals and to encourage boaters to explore the far reaches of the network, Scottish Canals and the Lowland Canals Association have created the Millennium Link challenge.
Every boat which visits all four points of the Millennium Link (City to City and Sea to Sea) which include Lochrin, Carron Sea Lock, Bowling and Port Dundas will receive a prize.
The prize for the first to achieve the challenge, generously donated by Scottish Canals, will be a free navigation licence for the 2022 season. All other successful contestants will receive vouchers for meals at convenient restaurants.
The only catch is images will need to be timed and dated, with your boat showing identifiable canal side features at the destination of each voyage, along with a simple log sheet for each qualifying trip.
The closing date for the Award will be 31st October 2021 but submissions can be sent as soon as you have completed the challenge. Submissions, with all substantiating documentation, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and headed “Are You Up For a Challenge”. Queries about the challenge should also be sent to the same address.
