Unless you have a mast 10 ft. high...I wouldn't call it sailing!...but a lot of sailboats step their masts and make the journey. Here's a map:

Here's the dimensions you need:
** Greatest length 38.5 meters
** Maximum beam 5.0 m.
** Maximum draft 1.8 m.
** Maximum air draft 3.5 m. (ie bridge clearance).
Amazon has a book by MCKNIGHT which is widely used as the guide for the canals.

From Med to English channel by French canals
There are several nice inland waterways from Med to English Channel.
I hope that someone have done that trip earlier and could help me.
What is the fastest way? How long time will it take?
My boat is 34feet long and 1,75 deep.
