We had the pleasure of welcoming back Richard and Mandy onboard this week. After successfully completing their RYA Helmsmans' course with us earlier this year they wanted more practice time at the helm whilst waiting for their new barge to be built.
Our ' Barging Experience' is proving to be a very popular way to learn the ropes(!), with RYA qualified supervision and the all important social aspect of what the cruising lifestyle has to offer. All with the added benefit of a mini cruising holiday on the beautiful Canal du Midi. ... See MoreSee Less

We’ve just enjoyed a fantastic weekend at the Moissac boat fete. A wonderful time with friends, lots of boating activities, socialising, river cruises and glorious weather. This is what the barging experience is all about 😀Barge Festival on the le Tarn near Moissac, France ... See MoreSee Less
The fantastic night markets - picture of the one in Damazan, musical get togethers in Buzet and now the Moissac boat festival.
So far 17 barges on the Tarn, similar number of cruisers too, plus the 'overspill' moored in the canal port. Dressing the ship activity has begun as flags galore are being worked on in the lovely sunshine after the 24 hours of rain/thunder storms. Lots to look forward to - river flotillas,'curry-oky' tonight, petanque, 'Big Tosser Championship', art exhibition and far too many music/bands to list over the whole weekend. Can't wait 🙂
We all arrived 3-4 days early so we've been practicing our social skills with pre-pre-pre-parties since Monday!! Question is will we run out of steam before Sunday night??! ... See MoreSee Less
