btrayfors Idiens,

Mais mon ami... ca c'est pour les Belges. Il y a plus que deux metres pour les autres navigateurs :-)

Idiens If you use the popular canal du midi, check your draft. I hear it sometimes only offers 1.4m.

camaraderie 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:

happypig Is that possible to "sail" from Med to English Channel through inland canals? Interesting!!

camaraderie 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. Cruising French Waterways, Third Edition: Books: Hugh McKnight

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.

Best regards,
