Q & A

Boating and epilepsy

Hi I'm interested in getting a canal boat in a few years. I have epilepsy and I was wondering if I can sail a narrow boat with epilepsy even if I engineered the back of the boat to be safe for me. My seizures can accrue months apart from eachother and are well controlled but I was wondering how I go about been allowed to sail a Narrow boat and with epilepsy if I'm even allowed? I shall look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Isabel.

It would not be a good idea to go boating alone, waterways can be isolated places. It might be worth talking to insurance brokers as that may be a stumbling block.
