Last year, James and I competed in the BCN Challenge with a bunch of other crazy boaters, attempting to navigate around as much of Birmingham's 100 miles of waterways as possible in 24 hours (30 hours in total with a 6 hour rest stop). It was brilliant fun, despite the 3am start on the Sunday morning and ever since, we've been keen to do it again this year -on the 2nd and 3rd June. Last year, we hired the Large Northwich Yeoford, which was very successful - it sleeps 12 in fairly basic but comfortable accommodation and it is a lovely old boat. We hope to hire it again this year, and are looking for crew - at least 9 more needed! It cost about £50 each for the boat hire, and we all clubbed together for food, making it not only a great weekend of boating, but a fairly cheap adventure too. Anyone keen, do get in touch!
