There was no wind from St Peter Port to St Quay, despite the weather forecast to the contrary, so we motored all forty miles.
Very hot and sunny. Saw two adult and two baby dolphins playing and fishing, sadly no good photos.
                                                                                                                                                         

Skipper off watch catching up on a few zeds

St Quay has 1030 places for boats six to eighteen meters, a hundred of which are for visitors. Despite its size it still has a village atmosphere

The town was evangelised by St Kenan a Welsh hermit, it is famous as being the scallop capital of the world, its casino and five beaches.

St Quay - Portrieux has a fishing tradition that dates back to the seventeenth century. The original boats used to fish off Iceland.

Nowadays between November and April the fleet rises to one hundred boats for the scallop season.

 

                                                 

 

The only strange thing is the showers

 

                                                        

 

You find a cubicle, go back to the panel and insert two euros. Run to your cubicle, you have one minute to get ready,

seven minutes to shower and four minutes to dress. All very weird.
