Brittany Cruise

This is the trip or those want to build up their sea miles on an extended cruise. Depart from Hamble bound for Ushant. This voyage enables you work the tides and visit ports like Treguier, Lezardrieux or the anchorages at Morlaix and L’Aber-Wrac’h. Sail through the famous Chenel du Four to Brest or Camaret sur la Mer and visit the mystical island of Ouessant (Ushant).

Many of our stop overs are spent at anchor in the ports, rivers and remote bays of North West Brittany. Much of the navigation is demanding.
