Newly updated 2020 editions of the UK Cruising Association’s three main inland waterways cruising guides for France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany have been published by the CA’s European Inland Waterways Section (EIWS) in time for the Christmas season.

All three editions — Cruising the Inland Waterways of France and Belgium, Through the Netherlands via the Standing Mast Routes, and The German Rhine — reflect the more than 200 updates posted by EIWS members up to October 2019 on the CA’s unique CAptain’s Mate app.

The publications also include a 25% discount offer on the first year’s CA membership when paid by direct debit to anyone purchasing one of the guides up to 31 December 2020.

Members have access to the online editions of the guides, which contain hyperlinks to the CAptain's Mate app, enabling users to access the most up-to-date information on mooring locations.

All three guides are available via the Cruising Association online shop at or from the print-on-demand publisher Lulu.

In addition to these three guides, the CA’s European Inland Waterways Section also produces full-colour photo guides to moorings and other facilities on 12 French inland waterways. Members and non-members can find further information from the EIWS section online.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
