This demountable Rutland 913 wind turbine fits on the wheelhouse roof, providing additional battery charging in winter months when solar is less available and maintaining off grid capability.


For shore power, Nulife has a Rolec electricity meter and up to 100 ft of heavy duty cable with shore power sockets both stern and bow for convenience


We use our Omnia stove top oven to make bread when wild mooring and out of reach of the morning baguette. As an alternative to running the big oven it’;s useful accessory for off grid living or when a guest’s gluten free diet is an issue!

Nous avons pique-niqué au bord de l’eau a Vianne!

Just 2 hours from Buzet along the Petit Baise, a beautiful Bastide village dating back 700 years, with free moorings, picnic tables, water and electric at no charge. Two excellent small local restaurants in the square. A favourite haunt.

Be careful of fast moving traffic on the tow path and maintain a supply of carrots if you decided as in this case, to embark on the Pilgrimmage to Compostella in Spain. This incredible route traverses from Conques in the east via the nearby port of Moissac, 70k away along the towpath, and westward through the Pyrenees to the Atlantic in northern Spain.
