Hi Phil,

As i can see, lawyer and Humber seems to be often together on the two sides of the channel...

it would be so but I sold the Humber some time ago -now looking for a replacement.

Instead I have an apartment in Nice and hire rib from local companies!!

Inland slipways (cales de mise a l'eau) and parking etc

Hi all, not sure I'm on the right thread, but has anyone any recent information about slips and car/trailer parking for the northern French inland waterways? I note that the coastal slips appear to be free - the Carte Fluviale guides show lots of cales, but no contact or other details. I plan a 2 week trip in June, but don't want to get stuck up some country lane with boat and trailer to find slip out of use/locked etc.
I have been on the Cap Breizh site, which is good, but with limited inland slip locations.

Sojourner, where are you considering?

I might be able to point you in the right direction

Thanks, Phil - I was orginally thinking of starting in Flanders, then into Northern France and possibly the Seine, but am somewhat put off by having to travel the Grand Gabarit, in company with 3000 tonnes peniches... However, I've just had a nice reply from the Yacht Club Anseremme, on the Meuse near Dinant - slip and parking free, beautiful cruising area, so I may start there..
However, any info you have would be most welcome (Boatlaunch site has hardly anything on France)
Regards, Howard.

not an area I am familiar with on water although it looks wonderful on the yacht club site; you might consider posting on one of the ybw.com boards--there always seems to be someone who knows what you need albeit not a rib site

regards
