WELCOME TO CANAL CAPERS WA website
The West Australian "Canal Capers" group has developed this site to facilitate the exchange of inland European boating information.
Our group has been growing steadily since its formation in 2004, we meet 5 or 6 times per year in Perth (Western Australia) to share our many enjoyable experiences as we slowly cruise the 16,000 kilometres of canals and rivers waterways in Europe.
Our member's vessels are currently dotted throughout France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. The last time we counted; there were over 120 members and over 30 European-based vessels owned by West Australians.
Membership is free of cost, but it is expected that members will share their knowledge and details of their experiences for the benefit of others within our group.
If you wish to pursue additional / more detailed information regarding the many pleasures of navigating the canals and rivers of Europe, then subscribe to our free newsletter or come to one of our Mosman Park Community Men's Shed meetings or Picnics / Barbecues - dates and details appear in the e-newsletter.
In the interim; if you wish to look at a few boats "For Sale" then a good place to start is "www.botentekoop.nl" - particularly after you have right "clicked" and translated into English.
Overseas members are also welcome to subscribe to our newsletter.
Bon Voyage !
