Cruise in Atlantic France

Your cruise in Atlantic France

Facing the ocean, the coast stretches from the ravissantes islands of Yeu and of Noirmoutier to the estuary of the Gironde then the Gascogne, landes and its long beaches of fine sand. The navigation to the south is simple, always any right with more luck to have a houle and of the wind bearing. This frange du littoral, although rather regular is subject to significant currents and tides that will not facilitate your anchorages.

Dufour was well equipped for sailing, including spinaker. Inside the boat, age (from 2008) was starting to show but absolutely acceptable. Initial briefing was very thorough and service excellent!

Wilfrid ( the charterer) was very helpful and the yacht was good -sailed well- it was roomy- the instruments all worked - good fridge and freezer.( 4 double berths: sadly no pillows.) Solar panel & wind generator were reassuring re batteries. Bow thruster was surprisingly useful in tight marinas. Can recommend attractive St Denis on Ile de Re , Sables d'Olonne ( get there early-space in the fishing harbour marina near the town is limited/ the larger marina is a long walk!) and the Charente river trip up to Rochefort (La Corderie,Hermione & restaurants) on the tide. Difficulties: Globe Sailor offered a Saturday to Saturday charter whereas it later emerged with the Contract that the charterer was offering Friday to Friday -so we lost a day in the end, and had to find accommodation for Friday night before our flights back to UK on the Saturday evening. This discordance of dates needs to be sorted out. The security deposit is a colossal 5000 e , so we suggest you insure it with Ouest Assurance. we had no damage (of course). if you do stay over- we can recommend spartan but modern Hotel Premier Classe des Minimes ( Booking.com) - £100 for 2 triple rooms -only 600m away. very efficient helpful staff. & the Carrefour Metro supermarket is close to this for stocking up- also 600m from the vast Marina. + worth 1km+ walking to the Market in La Rochelle for fish. galore. The fireworks at La Rochelle at 11pm on Bastille Day were superb, and walking around La Rochelle the next day - lots of history, lovely architecture, the fish & fruit market and good restaurants. For UK charterers, Easyjet flights from Luton & Bristol (Tues & Saturday only) are very economical.
