National 'Go Slow Weekend'

It has come to my notice that the National Association of Canal Boaters has decided to have a 'Go Slow Weekend', this is to be, apparently, a nationwide event where all concerned Canal enthusiasts are going to slow the traffic on our Inland Waterways to a pace where everyone can enjoy their boating. The dates have yet to be decided, but it will probably involve one of the busiest weekends of the boating calendar.
This sounds to me like a good idea, but it will probably mean that there are a few Hirers out on the cut who will end up late handing back their boats and having to pay an excess charge.
We joined the Langollen 2 days ago and so far have cruised to the Willeymoor Lock and Pub.
As the weather was published to be windy and miserable today we planned a Tesco's delivery and a session in the Pub at lunch time, I am just recovering from my post session NAP so please ignore any spelling mistakes and the poor grammer. And content.
Come back Jill all is forgiven.


  1. What a splendid idea - perhaps a similar idea could be arranged for thew Norfolk Broads!

  2. What a splendid idea, lets do that on the roads as well. Or perhaps we should mind our own business?
