L'berwrach to Camaret

01 June 2012
Michael Wilson
27th May 2012 (had to abort our effort on the 26th as weather looked grim and not worth risking going through the Channel Du Four with rocks a plenty and strong tides so took the decision to return to harbour). Left L'berwrach which had been a great place to spend a few days) at 10:20 and were boarded by French customs just before we left - thankfully no problems with a the documentation carefully presented in a folder and after all the trouble of getting the ICC qualification under my belt they weren't concerned about it - good job too as the Cert is still in the post somewhere! Picked up the cardinal and the Le Four light easily on route down to the Channel Du Four and with the eddy we picked up thanks to the tidal atlas got a good headstart into the Channel Du Four I'd read so much about - carefully noted the marks as we went through and watched the more experienced French sailors tacking about the channel (they must have done this before I thougt). Only really got any trubulance at the bottom by the biggest read lateral mark I'd ever seen! Made it to Camaret for 1600 and let Richard berth the boat which he did very nicely (although good job he turned when prompted lol) Went ashore for a nice meal and wondered around - the dogs had a great run on the beach - the least they deserved for being so well behaved!
