I have just received a message from Camille Longueval, the very helpful manager of the Roubaix Canal, and which I append here below. It contains a link to a short questionnaire.

The Roubaix canal is outside the responsibility of VNF and is run by Lille Metropolitan and Camille is concerned, as we all are, about our boating plans as a result of Covid-19. The questionnaire seeks to understand what each of us might plan to do once we have the ability to travel.

Please click on the link and complete the questionnaire.

Best wishes,


From: Camille LONGUEVAL

Dear boaters and friends,

I really hope you’re fine!

The health crisis we’re tackling is hard for everyone and it has disrupted a lot of our projects and our daily habits.
Each and every waterway around Lille (and the whole North of France) is now closed for leisure boats (and will be until May 29 probably).

As manager of the Roubaix canal, we would like to know how you react to this situation from a touristic point of view.
We would be very grateful if you could answer the short survey (link below):


This survey can be started, and finished later on.
It is available online until June 1st.
Your numerous responses will help us to prepare the rest of the season.

Please forward this message to your “waterway friendly” friends this will help us see the big picture of the situation.

A big THANKS for your participation.

Most of all : take care of yourself and family !

Kind regards.
