Then choose a site near a safe, sandy beach, preferably on the coasts of Normandy or Brittany in France, Belgium, Holland or Scandinavia Why? Because reaching them is comparatively easy and the heat is nothing like so intense as further south. This means children will be better tempered and the likelihood of picking up tummy bugs is much reduced. more > Time Off Guide 530 Angling 535 HAPPY MOTORING!

And most have playgrounds, table tennis and other attractions where children can make friends despite language difficulties! The distance you tow in a day depends on the ages of your children, the type of roads, the amount of traffic, the speed limit and your stamina. As a guide 300-350 miles of motorway driving and 200-250 miles on ordinary roads is a daily average. more > Time Off Guide 530 Angling 535 Angling Bridge Chess Rock/Pop

The regulations apply to homes and to caravans, but, astonishingly when you consider the devastating consequences of a fire afloat, they will not apply to boats. The marine industry will still be allowed to use polyurethane foams which are now thought to be too dangerous for use in the home. So it's up to the ordinary boat owner. Why not change your boat cushions and mattresses to ones made of fire- resistant foam? more > Time Off Guide 530 Angling 535 Angling Bridge Chess Rock/Pop

It is suspected that their hired catamaran may have been run down by a ship. Anyone who goes sailing in busy shipping lanes needs to be reminded of the importance of being seen. Fitting a radar reflector is essential of course, but not all those on the market are totally effective. Is yours big enough for instance? It might be worth fitting a radar detector, which sounds an alarm whenever your boat is being 'illuminated' by a ship's radar. more > Time Off Guide 530 Angling 535 Angling Bridge Chess Rock/Pop
