What exactly is wrong with the English
So Cherbourg is an easy entry and a good spot to top up supplies with a large supermarket 15 minutes walk from the marina.
Alderney unspoilt and looks like stepping back in time 50 years. Anchor
in the middle of the harbour for £5 per night inc showers on the jetty. Wifi
in the yacht club and visitors welcome.
Guernsey St Peter Port, again a must stop location. Use the cheap
busses to travel around the island. Tourist information office 100m from the harbour and very helpful. Wifi
and good showers in the marina.
Herm, take the cheap ferry
as its easier than going on your own and spend a day on shell beach, probably one of the best beaches in NW Europe
St Malo is nice and again an easy entry into the marina, but there is a cill so time to arrive at HW. There are white mooring
bouys just outside if yo are early.
Gulf of Morbihan is just fabulous and Le Crouesty again an easy marina to stop before timing the entry into the huge natural lagoon
with hundreds of islands to explore.
La Roche-Bernard an interesting trip up the river through a lock.
the islands of Belle Ile and two smaller ones to explore.
La Turballe one of our favourites.
Piriac also lovely but with a cill so timings important but worth it.
La Croisic very tidal but great market mid week. This might be a drying harbour, we didn't stop long enough to find out.
So that lot should take about 6 months. Worth buying
a new pilot for the Normandy and Britany coasts which will have the navigation
information on entering many of these fab little harbours.
