Hi all , we are at Decize heading for Briare , we draw 1.1 . There is no problem with water levels . The restriction at le gurtaine locks has finished- they are locking on request.
I don’t know anything about le boat - have they closed their base for commercial reasons?
Travelling north in the next week , will report any problems.
As an aside we have just traveled from Chalon sur Soane , on the canal du centre .
Water levels .good , weed problems from paray le mondial to digoin. And from digoin to Diou/ pk29(lock no 6 )

users of the waterway are informed of a reduction in mooring on the Loire side canal, at a rate of
1.60m.
These difficulties are accentuated on the reach of Maimbray, which only has a 1m anchorage.
Finally, sailors are also alerted to the lack of guaranteed mooring in the event of parking in the reach.

Lock restrictions can be anything from a reduced timetable to sharing a sas and even to insisting on not emptying or filling a lock without a boat or bots in the lock. I suspect the present situation will require sharing a lock with multiple vessels.

From our colleagues at Le Boat -

Due to low water levels on the Canal Latéral à la Loire lock restrictions are now in place along this stretch of the canal.
As a result, we will be closing our base in Chatillon sur Loire for the rest of the season, to ensure our customers holidays are not impacted by this situation.
