Leave Cameret at 07:00 FST to motor around the Pt. Sein and thence to Loctudy ( 47:50.33N, 4:10.53W ) for a meal aboard. The crew take a late night trip around the town, with a brandy or two to revive them.

Friday 17th May 2013

Up at 08:00 FST to depart Loctudy. Flat sea, with light easterly F3, and sunshine!! Arrive Le Palais on Belle Isle ( 47:20.92N, 003:08.87W ) at 17.45 FST.  Very small harbour so took a buoy outside.

Saturday 18th May 2013

The buoy was a mistake - wind got up overnight building up a swell, we decided to depart at 02:00 for Les Sables D'Olonne ( 46:30.19N, 001:47.46W ) arriving at 16:15 FST.

Sunday 19th May 2013

A day spent recuperating - and brunching a few bottles. Some crew panicking about flights etc., and leaving tomorrow. ( Mike E and Grant S ).
