The travels of narrow boat Racundra


We are looking for friends and relations to join us for a few days, a week or possibly two, in order to help with operating the locks, crewing the boat, and to keep us from each other’s throats! If you are interested please contact us to book a place.

However, note that we have no idea where we will be at any particular time, and it will be your responsibility to get to us and home again. This might mean leaving a car somewhere, or using public transport to get to us. We will pass through towns with railway and ‘bus stations and we will try to work something out with you when we know where we will be.

As people book with us, we will list the bookings here:
