A windward sail from the Morbihan with a pleasant ENE breeze and bright sunshine.  28 miles sailed today and some 569 miles sailed in total so far since leaving Hamble.

The lowest price marina we have found so far only just a bit over 16 Euros !  But we are moored a stones throw from a large commercial dock for the French Atlantic fishing fleet. I wonder how noisy it will be in the morning.  In addition it seems to be home to a very large flock of sea gulls !  To the East of the marina is a lovely beach that stretches for several miles.  We tried again this evening to use the wi-fi in a local bar but it seems the locals here and in La Trinite are not quite yet into the wi-fi broadband age.  The computer in the harbour office for visitors use looks like it may be getting on 10 years old but we will give it a go in the morning.
