The 2013 boating holiday season has many news, which we would like to present to you:
You can buy a holiday fishing licence (you will need a passport photo) valid for any period of one week between the 1st of June until the 30th of September. The price is about € 30. Depending on the region the holiday licence is available outside these times, too. Otherwise, an annual license is necessary, which is much more expensive. Your departure base will inform you. Fishing with a dragnet is forbidden and you should observe the regulations over minimum catch size (Pike = 50 cm / Sander = 40 cm / Trout = 23 cm).
In France, the right to use the waterways and locks is included in the hiring price.
There are some opening bridges that are only open at certain times (e.g. the bridge at Frontignan on the Canal du Rhône à Sète), others are only open on request and some that you manoeuvre yourself. You will find all these details in the guide map as well as in the boat's log book. Navigation on the Etang de Thau is forbidden if the wind is stronger than Force 3 Beaufort (12-19 km/h or 8-11 knots). The staff at the base will give you all the necessary information.
The locks are normally closed on certain bank holidays such as May 1st, 14th July and November 1st . However, there are numerous exceptions, which you can find in the base information on the following pages.
