British Waterways (BW) is today publishing updated, more concise mooring guidance for boats without a home mooring. 

British Waterways responded to the Bristol court decision in their favour by amending the “Mooring Guidance for Continuous Cruisers”.

Stakeholder organisations, including NABO, were invited to a meeting to discuss the changes on 23rd June 2011. Geoffrey Rogerson and John Slee attended on NABO's behalf. At the end of the meeting, NABO asked for the opportunity to submit written comments; BW's Head of Boating, Ms. Sally Ash, agreed, setting a deadline of 31st July.

Winter cruisers, between now and Monday 1st August you should be thinking about your winter plans. Why?
