It doesn’t get any better
Mont Saint Michel
After exploring the Channel Islands we will sail to the Brehat archipelago, located off the coast of Brittany in northern France. Brehat is a group of islands and islets that are known for their rugged coastline and beautiful beaches. Sailing up the river du Trieux until the village Lezardieux can also be an option.
If we sail back along the coast to Cherbourg, the ports of St.Malo, Cancale or Granville are an absolute must. If only to eat delicious oysters and see the famous Mont Saint Michel in the distance.
A real navigation challenge is Iles Chausey, off the coast of Granville. The archipelago is composed of about 365 islands at low tide, and only 52 at high tide. The largest island, Grande Ile, is only about 1.5 km long and 500 meters wide, but it has a rich history and cultural heritage. The island was inhabited by Breton and Norman fishermen for centuries, and it was also a popular hideout for pirates.
Overall, sailing with us at the Channel Islands and French coasts of Normandy and Breton coasts is a fantastic way to explore this beautiful part of the world. With careful planning, you’re sure to have a memorable sailing experience.
