Due to the wind, it took longer than expected to cover the early stages. From Toulouse, Ingrid decided to paddle on the Garonne, taking advantage of the currents and avoiding the canal locks that have to be crossed foot. In this way, she recovered the day lost on the Canal du Midi and made it to Royan in 9.5 days!
Ingrid wanted to prove to herself and others that we can regain confidence by surpassing ourselves.
Despite blisters, Ingrid was all smiles when she arrived in Agen on the 6th day. She had been paddling 13 hour days, encountered obstacles including the Beauregard dam; it was clear that she had already achieved her goal and that nothing could prevent her from reaching Royan.
