Live Availability & Online Bookings
Brittany is a paradise for those looking for some challenging tidal sailing. The high tidal range and strong tidal streams means that this is a cruising ground for the more adventurous sailor with experience of sailing in UK waters. Our preferred spot is somewhat sheltered from the Atlantic swells, and provides a fantastic mix of islands and the rugged Brittany coast to explore. Sunrises and night sailing will form part of your charter in these waters, to take advantage of favourable tidal streams to help you on your way.
Being in this fantastically fertile region of France also means that the local markets are bursting at the seams with the freshest fruit and vegetables, superb meats and local cheeses as well as some of the best fish and seafood to be found anywhere in the world.
The climate of Brittany is usually warmer and drier than the south of England, and the summer months can see temperatures reaching 30 degrees, although it is always advisable to be prepared for a shower or some windier conditions.
Experience Level 3
Atlantic winds provide unpredictable and sometimes challenging sailing conditions so a charter in this area is best suited to an experienced skipper, particularly in the spring where winds can reach up to Force 6. In the summer you can expect average winds of Force 2-4.
