    In focus: Narrow boat capsized by Welsh stag do party in Wiltshire


    Slips, trips and falls on stag dos are almost inevitable. There is no denying that after one too many, accidents and injuries do happen, but some of the craziest stags like to go that little bit further and make the headlines.

    Beyond slips, trips and falls: Capsizing narrow boats

    Yes, on 16 March 2014, a stag party managed to capsize The Yellow Weaver narrowboat on the Kennet and Avon Canal. After becoming stuck on the sill, the narrowboat turned over, blocking the entire area of the canal. Luckily, the stag and his party managed to escape unharmed by the incident.

    Not the standard stag

    While stag dos do encourage a good dose of tomfoolery, it is always best to stay safe and be able to tell the tale of the stag holiday when the days are done. Narrowboating is a stag sensation that is on the rise again, an alternative option to staying in budget hotels and hitting city centres. Unlike many other sports and activities of this nature, narrowboating does not require a licence and very little training is given,– sometimes just ten minutes –before you are allowed to sail the boat.

    Staying safe on stag dos

    Before attempting any activity on a stag do, be sure that you have received an adequate induction to avoid a holiday-related injury. Regardless of whether you travel within or outside of the UK, it is worth investing in travel insurance that will cover all activities you intend to take part in. Remember many insurance providers will not pay out for any alcohol-induced injury, so drinking responsibly is advisable. Look out for each other, stick together and don’’t leave anyone behind. You’’re in this as a group -– stay united.
