TOPIC: New French inland waterways guides

New French inland waterways guides 14 May 2020 02:36 #115931

Excellent and thanks Gordon.

I'm looking forward to downloading and reading some of the guides. I'm almost ashamed to admit that we haven't yet taken Catharina Elisabeth on any of them - but as all are in 'the plans', these will be very useful.

Gordon didn't provide a direct link to the books - but a bit of searching located the series using this link .

Members cruising in France may like to be aware of a new series of 12 full colour, digital guides to moorings along the French inland waterways that I have just launched. They are aimed primarily at motor cruisers and smaller barges (plus yachts in transit to the Med) and provide details of all the marinas, haltes and other mooring points (even picnic stops) along the waterways, together with summary information on facilities, shopping and nearby attractions. Each mooring point is illustrated with a colour photo.

All the guides are available to download from Google Play Books at a notional price of £5. Proceeds go to https://www.aspas-nature.org (Association pour la protection des animaux sauvages), a charity funded entirely by public donations which seeks to protect French wildlife from the numerous environmental and other threats it faces.

The guides currently cover the Canal du Centre; Canal du Loing and Canal de Briare; Canal entre Champagne et Bourgogne; Canal Latéral à la Loire; Canal Latéral à la Marne; The River Marne; Canal du Rhône au Rhin; Canal du Rhône au Rhin (Nord) and Canal de Colmar; Canal de la Marne au Rhin (Est); Canal de la Marne au Rhin (Ouest); Canal de la Sarre and River Saar and The Petite Saône. I plan to add to the series in future years (lock down permitting!) to gradually develop a complete suite of mooring guides to the French inland waterways (for updates see www.facebook.com/guideseditor ).

I also edit a range of publications for the UK Cruising Association, including guides to Cruising the Inland Waterways of France and Belgium; 50 Great Inland Cruising Routes in the Netherlands; Through the Netherlands via the Standing Mast Routes and The German Rhine.
