  1. Help getting in to the water

  2. Help getting in to the water

    Hi all, im looking for someone to help me get to the water. I don't drive due to a medical condition. Im hoping someone has a vehicle capable of towing my 20ft yogurt pot and trailer. I was thinking of devizes but as the boat is in Bristol. Perhaps putting in at Bristol docks may be more practical. Obviously I will be paying fo this. But as a complete novice I am looking for suggestions. Many thanks. The Blind Novice. Ps . Planning to put in April time. Boat in bs 5.

  8. Slipways near Chippenham

    Hi people, Im hoping to get cruising for the first time and not sure of the slipways available . I intend to start on the kennet and avon canal above the Caen flight but am open to suggestions from those who know. I only have a cheap little yogurt pot but I intend to spend the summer cruising the rivers and canals. Any help would be appreciated. I hope that having a yogurt pot will not disqualify me from hearing from the Wise Old Owls. Many thanks. The Blind Novice

So I can get back home every couple of weeks to sort post,laundry etc. Im hoping to get enough experience this year to tackle the Midi next year
