A guide to the immense network of waterways in France, describing 39 routes and including through-routes between the English Channel and the Mediterranean. It lists inland marinas and moorings, waterway signals, locks, French vocabulary and special problems of the Rhone.
This book has become the standard guide to the waterways of France. It gives practical pilotage advice on height and depth limitations, locks, distances and geographical notes for each French waterway. This new edition contains details of the latest facilities available to those wishing to use this system of waterways for pleasure cruising, or to take boats from the English channel down to the Mediterranean. Apart from route details, introductory chapters give helpful advice on planning a cruising holiday, local sailing procedure and boat handling. Philip Bristow has written several cruising guides on the subjects of Continental waterways and coastal sailing. His appreciation of the subject stems from a career in the Royal Navy and the ownership of several yachts.
