September Newsletter

!NEWS!

Welcome to our September Newsletter

Last month we announced The UKHO are changing the way they produce their small craft folios.  This service was due to launch in September.

Due to the requirement for some addiitonal technical development work needed internally at The UKHO, they will be delaying the release by 5 weeks.  The new service will now launch on 28th October and full roll out will complete on 2nd December.

This change will result in the withdrawal of the Admiralty Leisure Chart Folios as they currently stand, and the Leisure Notice to Mariners (LNMs) that support them.

ThFurther information will be provided once made available.  If you have any queries regarding this please contact us via either email sales@southbankmarine.com or call us on 01472 361137.

Tales for the Tillerman

Steve Haywood has been cruising the inland waterways for fifty years, and has amassed a following of readers keen to hear about his travelling tales on Britain’s beautiful canals and rivers. His previously published books – Narrowboat Dreams, One Man and a Narrowboat, Too Narrow to Swing a Cat and Narrowboat Nomads – have all been hugely enjoyed by those with a desire for a narrowboat narrative told in Steve’s witty, charming style.

Tales from the Tillerman is Steve’s next title and is both his tribute to Britain’s canals, rivers and countryside and a celebration of Britishness in all its eccentric glory. Unlike Steve’s previous titles, which have each focussed on one particular journey that Steve has taken, Tales from the Tillerman is casting the net wider and drawing from his full fifty years of experience, recounting the many hair-raising escapades he’s had up and down the country and reflecting on how the country and the cruising landscape has changed in those fifty years.

Anecdotes and light-hearted rants aplenty, mixed with some tall tales and a smattering of the nostalgic, in Tales from the Tillerman you’ll be thoroughly entertained as a middle-aged man (oh, go on then, an old one) reflects on his long love affair with boats and waterways, contemplating their importance to his life and how they’ve changed it.
