The compte-rendu (minutes) of this meeting dropped into my inbox yesterday, just 48 hours before the next extraordinary CLU which Richard Hyman and Rebecca Gumbrell with take part in.

Here is the original in French:

I recommend anyone navigating any of the Centre-Bourgogne waterways to read this alongside the Powerpoint slide presentation I uploaded in my previous posting in this thread.

There are details of when the different canals will cease to operate freely after which vessels will need to arrange to join a convoy. VNF request boaters to email their requirements in this regard and email addresses are included. Notwithstanding the lateness of receipt of this compte-rendu they ask for this information by the 23rd September!

Also, if there is an "unusual" section in the English version please refer to the French which you will be able to copy and paste a word or section into your own chosen translator. Unfortunately, I do not seem to be able to edit the .pdf translation.

Best wishes,

Bob

I 'attended' the latest extraordinary Commission Locale des Usagers of the Direction Territorial Centre-Bourgogne yesterday by videoconference.

Attached here are the presentation slides in the original French and in an English - of a sort - translation.

Representatives of the UTIs spoke to these slides and updated the meeting with the hydraulic situation which seems to have turned the corner.

Interestingly, the meeting was asked to inform of their plans for navigation in the coming weeks, more details to be sent to the email quoted in the slides preferably within the next week. Several commercial boaters ( PĂ©niche hotels; hire boat companies) gave detail to VNF who were keen to accommodate everyone to meet their requirements where possible.

The slides will give a good overview and I recommend viewing them. I will write further when the Minutes are available... and I can crib them!

Best wishes,

Bob
