Happy New Year! As we look forward to a busy 2020 barge cruising season, here’s a look back at 2019.
Pre-season varnishing underway in our “boat shed”, it takes a minimum of six coats to give the classic glossy boat look.
The season started with the grand opening of the canal with the “grand fromage” and her entourage aboard the Randle as a bottle of crémant (local champagne) was ceremoniously cut from a ribbon suspended from the Auxerre footbridge.
Many a delightful cruise was enjoyed aboard the Randle during the 2019 season, here is a photo gallery of the “passengers eye view” of some of our best moments,
The Randle rescues a stranded self-drive hire boat who took a wrong turn, best a have an experienced captain aboard at all times me thinks!
The canal is pristine, we help keep it that way too, recovering a carton from the canal

Wishing all our passengers past and future, and slow travellers of the world, a happy prosperous and joyful 2020 !
