First up in about six weeks time will be our first week away in Brittany on the Le Boat Capri TS. This 30ft boat is the smallest in their fleet but should still provide us with plenty of room compared to Naughty-Cal. Unfortunately we won't be taking Sydney on this holiday due to the 12 hour ferry crossing to St Malo. So he will be staying with friends whilst we are away.
The next boating break is then at Easter with a week in Belgium onboard Le Boat Cirrus B. This boat is slightly larger then the one we will hire in Brittany being a few foot longer and a good foot or so wider. It also has a fly bridge exterior helm leaving the majority of the downstairs level as accomodation. So should feel a much larger boat, ideal for two and a small dog. Yes Sydney will be coming on this holiday as we can cross the channel on the train and it is only a 35 minute crossing.
Our third hire boat in this run is not while October next year. We would hope by that point in the year that our house will be sold and we will have moved on. So it is time, hopefully for a holiday. This time in the UK on the Norfolk Broads onboard Swan Ranger hired from the Richardsons yard. This will certainly be the most plush of the boats we are hiring and will be the most modern boat we have ever hired. Of course Syd will be coming along for this holiday.
We will of course still have another couple of weeks holiday to contend with for next year but what with hopefully moving house that two weeks will most probably be spent with the arduous task of packing, moving and unpacking again. But if for whatever reason we don't end up moving we have plenty of options for a summer break as well.
