A reminder concerning alcohol when cruising

We want everyone to enjoy their time on our dayhire for all the right reasons, so you will appreciate that following a couple of recent isolated incidents of hirers behaving inappropriately on the canal, we have decided to tighten up on our already existing alcohol policy.  We have no wish to be party poopers – a cold glass of beer whilst cruising through the countryside is one of life’s pleasures – but we will now require that any alcohol brought on to the boat will need to be checked in before loading and will be limited to 6 units per adult (this is equivalent to roughly half a bottle of wine or a couple of pints of beer per adult).

Hire will be immediately terminated (with no refund of monies or deposit) should the boat be seen to be speeding or disregarding other vessels, or should there be any complaints of inappropriate behaviour or foul language. Thank you for your support in this matter and have a lovely day!
