Where next in Europe

Hi all

Where can I go next year for a boating holiday, have done lake Como and lake Annercy, both are stunning, Annercy being my favourite.

But where to next?
I will be trailering my boat to where ever we go, so will need a slipway, and would like to keep the boat on the water during the stay..

Thanks in advance

Adam

If you want to play it safe, you could go to Garda. Or step out of your comfort zone & go salty.

What about Palma

Our long term goal is to trailer our 6.5m rib from Wirral to the south coast, ferry to Santander, then down Spain to Barcelona, ferry to Alcudia on Mallorca then moor at Palma. After that we aim to visit each port on Mallorca and certainly circumnavigate the Island at least once. Jonny Boyes from JBT has done a similar trip a few years ago which he published. Wed take a while to do the preparation and make sure we had the correct papers etc.

No, that's the south east; basically a big river flowing through the land with some lakes and smaller rivers in the neighberhood.
I mean the south west; rivers (maas, waal, merwede), big open lakes (Oosterschelde, haringvliet, volkerak) some in direct contact with the sea (Westerschelde). A lot of marinas, slipways, fishing. Nice cities; Rotterdam, Dordrecht.

Lousy whether, though. Same as yours.

Its happening! The wait is killing me. As for the original post would love to get across to Europe as Dave and Bouncers adventures are quite inspiring. Not for a few years though

The Gulf of Morbihan. Mor-Bihan "little sea" in Breton... It is indeed a small interior sea, enclosed by the Rhuys peninsula, covering some 100 km (21 km long and 5 km wide). A narrow passage between Port Navalo and Locmariaquer allows communication with the ocean.

TBH, all the paperwork you need (pre Brexit) is the normal stuff youd have anyway. SSR, VHF cert & license, insurance etc. The only bit you probably wont have is a TL2, but you only need this in certain countries, Croatia & Portugal to name 2. You dont need one in spain/france/Italy etc. Its a worthless bit of paper anyway & shouldnt be required anywhere in the EU for a boat purchased in the eu. But thats bureaucracy for you.

Thanks all.

I think it maybe Annecy again, the place is just lovely.
I looked at lake Constantine, but this requires a German boat licence, the same as the ICC but done in German, maybe one for another year!

Thanks
Adam

,,, dependant upon the 13th Dec and any the outcome of any subsequent negotiations with Brussels, you are likely to need a green card. You require one for the tow vehicle and one for the trailer,,,, this should be simple but based on my experiences with Aviva this year, it is far from it. ,,, prepare early lol

Ive never had a GC for the trailer Jeff, is this something new? I now that the regs have changed for commercial trailers.

If we leave the EU ,,, and if it goes back to the pre EE days, yes, you will need a green card for car & trailer - this is not connected with the new requirement of having a reg plate for commercial trailers. You may also need an international driving permit
