Forget Me Knot, Community Canal Boat

Community Canal Boat - Forget Me Knot

Introducing the ‘Forget-Me-Not’ 

This initiative aims to support and provide charitable and non-profit making community groups with the experience of sailing and a trip away from everyday life. It provides a fantastic opportunity to experience the delights and hidden gems of the local region’s canals and inland waterways. 

The ‘Forget-Me-Not’ will accommodate up to 12 passengers (excluding crew members) to travel in style and offers amenities such as: 

• Comfortable seating 

• Kitchen facilities to cook hot food 

• Lift and wheelchair access 

• Washroom facilities 

The ‘Forget-Me-Not’ canal boat will provide an enjoyable and rewarding experience, create some wonderful memories and opportunities to chat with others in a safe and relaxed environment. All voyages will be facilitated by fully trained 

crew members.

Due to COVID-19 we had to cancel our Official Launch of the Forget Me Knot in April and it looks like it will be next year before we will be able to take communities for a sail. It also meant that we haven't had the opportunity to fund raise to cover the costs of running the boat. Although we haven't been able to take it out, we still need to cover mooring, licence and insurance costs. We will soon re-commence volunteer crew training, so that we are ready to go when the time is right.

Humber Aid will fund the boat costs of each trip
