Sailing Festival Videos Show Spectacle of Boats

Summer is Sailing Season!

And with the season comes a boatload of sailing festivals.

I saw this video which shows a boating festival on the Gulf of Morbihan in Brittany France.

This English name (Gulf of Morbihan) is taken from the French version: le golf du Morbihan. It is more accurately called 'the Morbihan' when one looks at the local name.

Here is some information about the Gulf of Morbihan.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_of_Morbihan

As the video shows, boating is popular, with countless boats on the water and thousands of spectators on the shore. I am always amazed to see such festivals because of the many different types of boats shown.

What a wonderful sight! What a spectacle!

I would love to see this festival (and others) someday from the deck of a boat.



And here is a Facebook link to the video:

My suggestions:

If you know of other great boating festivals that take place around the world, post some information here along with the dates they are held. Approximate dates are OK.

If you have a link to another popular sailing festival, post it here.

If you have a link to another video of a popular sailing festival, post it here.

If you have participated in such a festival, post your anecdote or comment of your experience here.

Re: Sailing Festival Videos Show Spectacle of Boats

We were in Brittany for Brest '96. HUGE gathering of wooden sailing boats. Truly spectacular.
