Synopsis

Terry and Monica Darlington are intrepid pensioners who made the surprising decision to sail their canal narrowboat Phillis May, sixteen hundred miles across France and down to the Mediterranean, accompanied only by their whippet Jim. They took advise from nautical experts, who told them they would lose their boat and their lives (and, indeed, their whippet Jim). Narrow Dog to Carcassonne is a true story of high adventure in France, England, Belgium and out at sea, as experienced by two innocents and a reluctant dog. On board the Phillis May you share in a very different way of life. You go rabbiting in Oxfordshire, tie up among the bankers in the City of London, live among history in Flanders, drift through Champagne, throw a rope around the Eiffel Tower, struggle with hostile life forms in Burgundy, float down the Saone from vineyard to vineyard, get swept along by the terrible Rhone from Lyon to Avignon, dip your toes in the Mediterranean, and sail across inland seas among the flamingos of the Camargue.

Breakdowns, floods, accidents, hangovers, vandals, dicks, trolls, aliens, gongoozlers, killer fish and the walking dead stand between our intrepid crew and their goal - many-towered Carcassonne.

Terry Darlington was brought up in Wales in the early forties between a Sunderland Flying Boat base and some oil storage tanks, an ill-chosen location at the time. In Stone in Staffordshire he founded Research Associates - market research worldwide - now run by the next generation, who are much better at it than he was. He also founded Stone Master Marathoners, and as President he is still used for ceremonial purposes. He likes boating but knows nothing about it.
