Road trip for Emma's crew... We're on the road to Morocco

Liz and Rene, owner-operators of the French Hotel Barge Emma, are helping to sponsor a jeep in the Rally of the Gazelles. It is an all-women race across Morocco, held March 13-27, 2010. Their team is #104, Martine and Cecile.

You can read more about the race on the web site :

Rene has been busy getting the Land Rover 4x4 prepared for the desert and today they are on their way; taking the ferry from Sete to Tangiers, and then a few weeks of roughing it in the desert.

Sounds like fun, but I'm sure they'll be glad to return to the French waterways and the comforts of their home, Emma.

Emma has two cabins available for their cabin cruise of May 8-14 (Carcassonne to Beziers, Canal du Midi), and we are keen to fill it...

Liz told us that the King of Morocco is hosting an aperitif for the rally. Maybe she could interest him in a week on the canal... Go for it, Liz :)
