On our way to Bay Of Biscay

We are motoring again, in calm seas, but some waves...
Our destination was Roscoff to have a nice dinner and spend the night, but when we figured we wouldn't be there before midnight because of the tidal current against us, we decided to continue to the "corner", where we will meet the atlantic ocean and turn south to sail past the Bay of Biscay.
We will probably make a quick stop at ILE D'OUESSANT, which is the laegest island at the "corner". During the time we spend there, we hope that the expected rain and wind will pass, so we can cross the Bay of Biscay in calm seas & weather.
The main issue with any of the harbours around here is, the water level changes up to 9-10 meters at times, so we have to figure out the exact timing to be in a harbour with enough water for us, and leave before we ground!
This morning, while we were refueling in Jersey, they simply wanted us "out of there quick" ! When we moored the fuel station, the depth was 3,5m. In 20 minutes, the depth was 2,5 meters and the guy said "if you wait another 5 minutes, you will ground here, and also break our fuel pontoon, so stop refueling and go" :)
