No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Plans for 2011

This years Summer cruise is going to be a bit gentler that 2010, well that's the plan.
Two things which we will include are the Crick Boat Show and the I.W.A. Festival at Burton upon Trent, these are a must as Jayne has taken on the job of organising the stand for the RBOA at both these events in 2011.

Our involvement with the Historic boats Nutfield and Raymond is the next thing to consider so after the Crick show we will head for the Stoke Bruerne Gala Weekend on 10/12th June, then onto the Braunston Historic Boat Show on 24/26th June.

Next stop will be the I.W.A. Festival, I have volunteered to help with the setting up so will be there for 3 weeks before the event opens and probably a few days after it closes, that takes us into August at which time we will come back to Kings Bromley Marina for 2 or 3 weeks as August is a very busy time on the Canal and we would rather avoid it.

Hopefully in September it will be a bit quieter, we then hope to go up to Llangollen, we had planned to go in 2009 but the Shropshire Union Canal (our prefered route) was closed due to a breach.

1st and 2nd of October will see us back down at Stoke Bruerne for the Village at War weekend , always a good event, but before we tackle any of this No Direction needs a bit TLC so we are booked into Shobnall Marina dry dock at the beginning of April for hull blacking and few other small jobs which I need to do.
