Thanks - It was sub-15m I was after - and without power as the boat is not lived on.

Any idea of the winter 1018/19 rates? Maybe interested - 14.4 m. Thanks

I think Reims is possibly the least attractive place to moor anywhere, not just France! Lovely city though.

The 2018 prices have arrived for Sillery and Reims. For 1 day, 15-20meters, 20 euro, 20+ meters 25 euro. For 5 days, 15-20 meters, 65 euro, 20+ meters 80 euro. These are in effect from 2 Saturday in April to the 3rd Sunday in September. Winter rates with electricity - 15-20 meters, 1240 euro, 20+ meters 1390 euro. Rates seem to be the same for Sillery and for Reims, which wasn't the case in the past.

Our 16m syndicate Brunel is currently wintering in Sillery.

I expect that we shall be leaving our mooring around the middle of April, although I am not the first owner on board this year.

Make contact as Sharon says with the Tourist office.

Cheers

We have wintered our boat in Sillery for 3 years now. You actually can make advance reservations for winter. In fact you probably won't find a space unless you do. I will update the WW guide. The Sillery port is a nice one, in a very wide spot so there is little disturbance from passing trente-huits. There is a bakery and an intermarche in town and easy bus to Reims. Halte Nautique is managed by the Office du Tourisme in Reims. There is no one in the Captainerie between October 1 and May 1. If you want to arrange to leave a boat for a period of time in April, you should contact the Office du Tourisme in Reims directly. There is likely to be space for a 15 meter boat and two weeks would be no problem. There would be a charge but at your size it isn't very onerous. Suggest you try to contact Thomas Damar - t.damar@reims-tourisme.com- for a price quote and to arrange a space if you decide to do that. If you have any other questions feel free to respond or PM me.

Is anyone able to give more info on the Sillery moorings.
The WW guide says it is suitable for winter moorings , that reservations are not possible & that staff are only there in the evenings.
But there is no mention of restrictions during the "season"
But is a 10-14 day mooring possible, say in the second half of April?
Is it somewhere that I might have an expectation of finding a 15m space?
