A Journey Through France

- Through France by boat on the rivers and canals, from north to south and east to west -


Paul and Sheryl Shard are the pre-eminent award-winning sailor-filmmakers. Cruising onboard their Southerly 42 and 49 yachts “Distant Shores” they have sailed 90 000 nautical miles together, crossing the Atlantic five times and making superb – inspirational and practical – films along the way. There are 91 film episodes of their journeys to date.

In 2012 (using french-waterways.com as one of their guides!) they sailed from the UK and through the French canals. Taking the Bourbonnais route, this DVD follows them from Le Havre to Paris, through the Loire-Centre canals, to the Saone and the Rhone and into the Mediterranean.

As well as being a superb video documentary about “Through the French Canals”, the DVD also covers practical aspects such as preparation, fendering and lock technique.
