June 27 – through the lock in Darwin

After a good sleep we came through the lock into the marina.  The Darwin coastline is subject to tidal ranges up to 8m or 25ft at certain times of the month and year. For this reason a lock is ued to maintain the water level within the marina.  This was our first experience going through a lock and Nick was our line handler.
