Brest

What a great place to sail – the Rade de Brest is very Solent-like and with many nearby towns to visit such as Camaret, Morgat, Douarnenez and numerous anchorages there is plenty to keep a crew occupied.

Exiting the Gulet de Brest is another thing altogether – wind if straight on accelerates through the gulley and as we hit the open water we hit 20-25 knots and kept burying the bow before being thrown skywards wave by wave. About a mile later, probably less, we were on a calm blue sea with a steady 8 knots over the deck and hardly able to set sail.
