Breaking out 1  - Cropredy, January 2010
'Auriga' attempts to break out of the ice at Cropredy on 10th January 2010. Boats had been iced in for well over a week
and the need to get to Cropredy Wharf to empty lavatory tanks and top-up with fresh water was becoming desperate.
'Alnwick' is following, stern first, to generally assist and provide a channel through the ice for the return journey.
