Wednesday 23rd June
Alarm went off at 05.05(!) and cast off at 05.50 to
catch the tide at the marina entrance. When we returned to Moonbeam yesterday
there was a yacht moored alongside but they found another berth when we said we
were leaving at 05.30!
Beautiful morning and we motored with the tide with
us until 09.00 when at last we got some wind.
Wind eased but such a lovely day we carried
on sailing and decided to head for Ile de Yeu instead of carrying on to
Entered Ile de Yeu at 11.30 local and
relaxed! Very hot in a lovely harbour where they have squeezed in 600
berths as well as the local fishing fleet docks.
Walked around the town which is amazingly self
contained for an island.
Superb fishmonger provided sardines and prawns for
dinner after we had visited Twayblade RCC for drinks along with 2 other RCC
Tempting to stay another day but will head for
