Do you fancy drifting quietly downriver playing skipper of your own barge? Enter our competition to win a boating break
When you board a canal boat for the week and set sail on the winding waterways, you get a chance to discover the countryside from a different perspective. Ducks and coots paddling beside you, butterflies alighting on waterlillies, woodland wildflowers creeping down to the water’s edge and pub gardens inviting you to moor up.
You’ll be captain of your own ship with no one to bother you. Full training is provided, along with buoyancy aids and a boat license. All the boats have small, fully-equipped kitchen areas, heating in case it gets chilly in the evenings and even waterproofs for the helmsman. You can choose from 14 start locations, from Falkirk in Scotland to Hilperton in Wiltshire. Dogs are welcome, too. Hop aboard and see the countryside at your own pace.
