Narrowboating on Great Britain’s Canals

Follow the evolution of several thousand miles of the British canal system from transporting cargo to today’s boating community living and vacationing on the water.  Begin with the “101 Basics” of the canals and the engineering needed to use them.  Move on to “What do I need to do to plan and have an enjoyable holiday?”  We will finish up with a roundup of answers to your best questions and learn more about this interesting, quirky and almost unknown part of Britain’s history.  Did you know Birmingham, England has more miles of canals than Venice?

Presenters:  Amos and Charlene Meyers are Sun City residents and long-time users of British canal boats.

3 Wednesdays in March at 2:00 p.m. the 6th, 13th and 20th in the Activity Center’s Hopi Room.
