An independent organisation,  the Association of Continuous Cruisers, was officially formed on 26 September 2013.

It will provide support and advice for it’s members and will advocate for or represent them.

There are around 5000 continuous cruisers using the canals. They do not have a home mooring and occupy the canals on a Continuous Cruiser licence issued by the Canal & Rivers Trust.

Because they have to move their boats frequently as defined by the CRT, they have specific lifestyle problems as a result of having no fixed base. Hence they need support in dealing with this and the stipulations of the CRT license.
