Practical Boat Owner - - News -

Yachts­man Peter How­ell, who sails Sun­downer, has con­tacted PBO to warn of lock re­stric­tions.

Peter, who cur­rently re­sides at Port de La Roche Bernard, France, said: ‘The lack of rain­fall in the Vi­laine has re­sulted in lock re­stric­tions at Arzal. July lock clo­sures have not yet been an­nounced, but vis­i­tors may need to ring ahead to Arzal or LRB port of­fices to check.’

Cruis­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (CA) pres­i­dent Ju­dith Grimwade said: ‘Lock open­ing times are on the La Vi­laine web­site at www.lav­i­laine.com/index.php/en/ eclusages-du-jour or 09 69 32 97. These are in English and French. There is a wait­ing pon­toon down­stream of the lock with ac­cess ashore, but no wa­ter or power.’
