As you can probably tell, I've done the French canal route to the Med., and I'm not the only one to have done so! It's a bit different, needs some extra preparation and is a great way to travel if...

We dropped our mast at Le Harvre and had it transported by lorry to Port Napoleon where we met up with it 2 months later. This gave us clear decks all the way. If you're going to keep your mast on...

You've got the Italian Riviera to the North (Rapallo, St Margharita and Porto Fino) pretty expensive if you're not staying on board. What about trying further south - a berth on the River Arno,...

Do you really want Rupert Murdoch to get aboard your boat? Why not stick with the BBC or ITV and download the films you want to see. I wouldn't let that man on my boat if I was you.

I only joined the other day too. My boat's been to the Med (with me on board, fortunately) but now back in wintry Devon.
