2020 is reaching to its end !
Bernard is looking back on the events that made this year memorable !
Opus, the brand new boat !
Our new boat, the Nicols Sixto named “Opus” by our Facebook community, arrived beginning of April ! With this event, the range is getting a little wider ; offering the roomiest three cabin boat of the fleet ; alongside an optimal onboard comfort (bowthrusters, side doors, flying bridge, large shower cabin etc …). Take a glimpse on the Nicols Sixto by clicking here.
The summer was hot, hot, hot !!!
The winter has been hot in Anjou ; and many of you sailors came onboard to refresh yourself alongside the water … But you’re not the only one ! When the heat is reaching your trainers and mechanics ; the lunch break is turning into a swimming session !
Mayenne lock-keepers throwing a hell of a party !
As per usual, the Mayenne county managed to enlighten its conviviality, its peaceful sceneries and its spirit of celebration ; and this all thankd to the Mayenne’s lock-keepers ! A party that the whole staff of Anjou Navigation enjoyed and wishes to be renewed next year !
Jean François heading to a new adventure !
After many years of loyal and tremendous work, the Sablé marina advisor, head of the technical team ; our intrepid Mcgyver and keeper of knowledge is reaching a well-earned retirement ! All the staff is wishing him favorable winds for its nautical and terrestrial adventures !
New staff coming in !
This year, the team of Anjou Navigation is getting a bit wider !
We are welcoming Josué, a sea navigator that we are converting to the benefits of inland fresh waters, bringing its support to Alexis, Christian and Kevin for the technical part of our work !
Lilou is also joining us as an apprentice, to help you choose the right boat, do your booking and organize your cruise !
The Sarthe “écourrues”
If last year was the time for the Mayenne écourrues, 2019 was Sarthe’s year !
The écourrues, taking place once every three years, involve lowering all water dams so the river can find its natural, lowest level again. This event, lasting approximately two months, allows a deep cleaning of the river alongisde repairing bridges, locks and installing new fish passes, etc …
With the autumn’s rains that we got this year ; the écourrues will be a bit extended through the winter and navigation will be closed on some river’s section to finish the work that started.
And what about you ?
