We've been asked if we could do a 2 night Taster cruise local to Skipton this year - despite being fully booked, helpful as ever, we've squeezed this in to our turn around days.

Our guests will join us around lunchtime on 30thm September and we'll set straight off - Bound for Gargrave.  We'll enjoy the scenery as we work our way through numerous Swing bridges on route and finally tackle the 3 locks to make our way into Gargrave pound...  Here we'll turn (wind) and tie up in readiness for an early start the next morning.

After we've had our breakfast, we'll return whence we came but rather than stop in Skipton, we'll keep going east on the canal as far as Kildwick.  Once through the swing bridge there, we'll turn the boat around and head back to Skipton where we'll moor on on the visitor moorings for our last night together.

Following breakfast on the morning of the 2nd October, we'll bid our guests farewell and then start the quickest boat clean/laundry turn around in our history in readiness for our new guest which arrive at lunchtime.

For a short cruise, it's a great introduction to cruising "out of season",  operating swing bridges and manual wide locks... no  doubt the fire will be blazing so we'll all be toastie and warm in the boat no matter WHAT the weather is doing outside.
