Another suggestion is to make a call to the control lock, l'écluse de Crèvecoeur, on +33 3 27 78 24 24.

p.s.  but its probably safer to go down the Sambre 
The aquaducts at Saint Waast and Noyelles are on chômage from April 1 to August 15 according to the revised 2023 chômage list.  The other change from the original chômage list is l'écluse de Honnecourt which has moved to June so there may be a week from now until 20th March open until L'écluse de Proville goes out.  I doubt that is long enough for you, Martin.

I recommend studying the chômage list and the revised chômage ist on vnf.fr and the Sambre-Oise looks more promising.

I have also written to VNF in Lille for absolute clarification but reading the Chômage list and the amendments to the list it doesn't look good.  Apart from a couple of 2 day windows it will not be possible to through navigate the Canal de Saint Quentin until the middle of August.

Sorry you will have to delay your departure, Martin, but I think you will enjoy the Sambre-Oise axe.

I'm even more confused now as I've had the following reply from VNF at Cambrai:

"Le canal de St Quentin sera fermé à la navigation à compter du 17 avril 2023  pour une durée de 4 mois."

I really hadn't seen that it was closed for most of the summer.  And it won't be navigable thereafter because of weed!

Good point and, as we wanted to go that way in April, I've sent an email to VNF just now. I'll post what I get back
regards
Rob
PS: I would say you're a frequent floater rather than flyer but that doesn't sound good, does it?

Hi All

sorry to be a frequent flyer on this subject but have tried using the site  www.vnf.fr/calculitinerairefluvial/app/Main.html to ascertain if we can get through the St Quentin end of March/April and it still says that it is open and there are no chomages.  Can any one help me here? Can see there was a planned chomage from January till the 9th May with 'Navigation interrompue' but is this still the case?

We are blocked from our other route on the Sambre as we cannot get out of Kortrijk down the Bossuit- Kortrijk canal until 1st April and we really wanted to leave before then.

regards
