The Pouilly Tunnel is 3.5km long on Burgundy Canal between Escomes and Pouilly.

Due to height restrictions, we had to take our wheelhouse down.

Many barges are unable to transit the tunnel because their wheelhouses are fixed.

Patty & Don of the barge Maria, and Kathy and Richard from Le Premier joined us.

Leo and Sara were working on Le Premier this summer and came along.

It was a fun day visiting and sharing the adventure.
