Channel du Four
Famous and feared by sailors since ancient times a passage of Channel du Four between Ile dÒussant and Bretagne needs careful planning. For us passing through the channel was a pure pleasure. With a speed over ground of 8,5kts,flat ocean, and loads of dolphins enjoying the currents you find yourself wondering what all the fuzz was about.
No doubt this could be hell in galewinds against strong tide creating overfalls.I guess the trick is to use tidetables and modern weatherservices to avoid the wrong circumstances.
