Mosaic has provided day trips on the River Soar since 1972. When Sunbeam I needed extensive repairs back in 2016, the Trustees felt it was time for a replacement. So on June 25th 2019 the High Sheriff of Leicestershire officially launched our brand new, fully accessibly wide-beam boat. This was the culmination of two years of hard work and many hours invested by our team of amazing volunteers. Without their efforts and tireless dedication, mosaic would not have been able to raise the required funds for the boat.
Sunbeam II leaves the Hope and Anchor Pub in Syston at 10am and sails along the Grand Union Canal, the River Wreake and the River Soar. Along with taking in the sights and the sounds of the countryside, there is the added option of having a pub lunch along the way.* Sunbeam II will return to the Hope and Anchor pub at 4pm. The boat can take up to twelve people which includes four wheelchair users and operates a variety of trips; weekday and weekend trips from 10am-4pm and evening trips from 6pm-8pm. There will also be trained Skipper and Crew to safely man the boat, along with a designated first aider.
Group bookings and individual bookings are welcome.
*Price not included. (We ask that customers preorder their lunch via the pubs themselves.
