We had four summers cruising in France


In 2010 we did the 'Route Bourbonnais' (which comprises the Canal du Centre, the Lateral a la Loire, the Briare and the Loing) from the River Saone in Burgundy, north to the River Seine. Then down the Seine to Paris where we joined the River Marne before joining the Canal du Champagne south back to St Jean de Losne.


2011 we went up and down the Canal du Bourgogne


2012 we set off up the Marne au Rhin towards Besancon but turned backdue to bad weather and did the Canal du Nivernais instead - which was a magical trip


2013 we took a road trip instead and hacked about with the boat so no cruising


2014 we cruised from St Jean to Belgium via Dunkirk
