A bit on the side
21 July 2017 | Brest
DavidH Warm and dry
Whilst waiting in Brest I watched with some bemusement, (as did many others!) as this yacht slowly leaned away from the wall. Chadenfreud I guess. They tied the dinghy under the port side and she refloated ok so more embarrassing than harm done. Someone said that the owner had been out for a bit on the side and got more than he bargained for.
Another tick on the bucket list
10 July 2017 | Douarnenez
Point de Penmarc'h being in sight to the West it was easy to passage plan for slack water at the point, full tide under me at the Raz de Seine and an East bound lift along the North side of the Raz Peninsular, arriving with the last of the flood at one of Yachting's Meccas - Douarnenez. And so it came to pass, a glorious day's sail, with a well sheltered berth at the end of it, best part of 50 miles, some fog banks just as I drew level with the Raz itself, a cracking reach for the last 15 miles into the bay at Douarnenez and a couple of days to explore the really good maritime museum and other attractions.
The marina is round the corner to the left in the photo.
