End of Season

It's all over for another year.

Sapphire moored up at Sprotbrough

On reflection its been a wonderfully eventful season with a busy schedule. We have met some lovely people and the weather has been quite unexpected at times, from droughts to floods. The most memorable being a honeymoon couple who travelled from the sun in Cornwall to a weekend of non stop rain. They still enjoyed themselves and won't forget their honeymoon in a hurry.

With the addition of our new luxury narrowboat Sapphire our business has grown and enabled us to extend the team. It has been great to welcome new passionate people to our little family. We have especially enjoyed the start of our new relationship with a local canal side charity that now offer extra training to our guests. More information to be released in the New Year.

A couple of new events this year were our Easter Egg giveaway in April. It was a lot of fun and thankfully wasn't hampered too much by the rain. We also trialled a 2hr taster cruise for people interested in booking a 2013 holiday. This was very successful, it gave us the oppertunity to show groups of friends and family around the boat in a relaxed way and has led to bookings next year. We will update our events calendar for 2013 in January, so watch this space.

Here are some great pictures of the 2012 season, with the help of photographs from some our guests.
