Welcome in CruisersForum, seeleys
Yes, South Brittany is a bit crowded in summer. But it's generally possible to obtain a berth in marinas
, provided you arrive early enough. Sometimes, you will have to raft up, even on mooring
For example, that's the case in River Belon: there are 3 big steel
mooring buoys, between which you moor bow and stern, alongside with 2 or 3 other yachts.
Some very popular mooring areas are full by mid-afternoon. That's the case in Glénan archipelago. Depending on the tide, some moorings might also not be deep enough for 40' yachts.
It's the same for some anchorages
, e.g. on the coast of Belle-Île when the weather
is suitable. The other weekend, the anchorage where I intended to go appeared crowed. There were 4 yachts in the one I finally chose, another arrived after us.
Maybe we will meet when you come cruising...
