We made it through the Raz de Seine (known for being some of the roughest water and fierce tides around France), at slack tide and yet it was still choppy! I’m glad we weren’t sailing against the tide (it would have been like a washing machine)! It was great to sail past these lighthouses and into calmer water and down wind to Benodet and Sainte Marine.
From the gentle waters of Sainte-Marine we sailed to Concarneau with its fortified town and beautifully preserved cobbled streets. The boys loved climbing over the massive ramparts and drawbridge, and the surprising good fishing museum where we explored through an old big fishing trawler as part of the exhibits!
