Since 1is May, the season is launched for the L’Eau Reine nautical club. But recent flooding has thwarted the team’s plans. “The water rose high, devastating in its path all the preparations that we had put in place: the flower boxes, the benches, the picnic arrangements, the decorations…” explains Jean-Yves Haus, the president . But the motivated members quickly cleaned everything up. A few details remain. “This Saturday, June 22, we will replant the damaged paths,” adds the president.

Stroke of luck: the Schiffnickel was under repair at the time of the floods. “Originally we were going to put it back in the water on Tuesday of flood week. But it was raining too much. La Sellerie de l’Est, which replaced the tarpaulin, agreed to keep it for a few days. » The boat was launched on Wednesday June 12. “We made a wise decision,” confirms Robert Mallick, vice-president of the club. €4,000 was invested in this restoration. Next project: switching to an electric motor. “But with the unexpected costs linked to the floods, we are waiting…”, punctuates Jean-Yves Haus.

Two hours of walking

Today, everything is ready to welcome tourists. “We are just constrained on the route,” explains the president. Voies navigables de France (VNF) are still cleaning lock 28. The most affected is lock 30 at Grosbliederstroff. There will therefore not be the possibility of passing through the locks. Those interested are informed and decide whether or not they wish to be involved. »

Their concept: two groups alternate walks on the towpath and outings on the river. Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the marina. One will leave on foot in the company of Arlette Kremer, guide, while the other will be on the Schiffnickel in the company of the captain, Jean-Jacques Hilpert.

The Schiffnickel, which can accommodate 10 people in addition to the captain and his cabin boy, will make its first summer outing this Sunday, June 23. It is full. The next meetings (€20/person upon registration only at the tourist office or online) are scheduled for July 7 and 21, August 4 and 25, but also September 8. On July 28, a day trip is offered (two groups of 9 people) to Zetting, with a visit to the church led by Gilles Weiskircher (the price remains to be defined).
