Brief description of the holiday
A week to discover sailing or improve. The stay will allow you to address the sail settings, the steering of the boat, reading maps and how to navigate with Channel tides with strong currents and one of the most important tides in the world.
In the wind, you will sail, because you will be at the maneuvers, either towards the Anglo Normandes, or towards Barfleur and Saint Vaast-la -Hougue. Crossing the CHANNEL possible if the conditions weather permitting. Quarter-nights if the crew is leaving.
See you soon on board!
DUFOUR 50 CLASSIC is a boat of 15m.
After sailed in the Caribbean, it has been moved to SAINT NAZAIRE and then CHERBOURG in May 2014.
The port is in deep water, which allows to be free of our movement. The boat can leave and return to port at any time. This specificity gives an appreciable freedom of navigation because most of the ports located in HIPS must cope with the tide. It has 10 berths with 3 double cabins and 4 bunks. But in order to be comfortable in navigation, the crew will not exceed 8 people.
it has a large sail and a genoa of 55 m2, a spinnaker of 200 m2, a solent. The electronic equipment ensures optimum safety: an AIS GPS radar, a fixed VHF, a RAYMARINE electronic control unit.
