Brief description of the holiday
Discover the wild landscapes of northern Brittany . On the program a concentrate of all facets of coastal navigation: High tides, islands, rocks, cliffs, capes, bays, rivers, but also land hikes to discover the jewels that are for example the island of Bréhat or the Seven Islands .
From Saint-Malo, first navigation along the Emerald Coast. Passage at the foot of Fort Lalatte and Cap Fréhel, the first trail mark on the legendary Route du Rhum.
Then follows the crossing of the Bay of Saint-Brieuc , heading west to the Ile de Bréhat that we can explore on foot.
Then we walk along the Côte de Granit Rose, bypassing the Sillon de Talbert, a unique geological curiosity in Europe, to anchor in the Sept Iles archipelago, the largest French bird sanctuary.
We continue towards Roscoff and the Ile de Batz , then it will be the return to Saint-Malo via the Rivière du Trieux and the wild coast of Goëlo and its high cliffs.
It is a boat designed for the trip drawn without worry of gauge. Everything has been done to obtain a fast boat while respecting the specifications for the big cruise, that is to say a sailboat, with a great stability of road, the capacity to support a heavy load, and a great solidity for the security needed for this program.
Although having a reinforced sampling, the boat is lighter than a standard construction thanks to its method of construction in epoxy wood composite, according to the method of strip planking. It is a fiberglass / red cedar / epoxy resin sandwich that combines a compromise between lightness, rigidity, strength, and insulation.
Despite its travel boat program, it has been designed and built with real performance concerns that bring pleasure, feel, and safety. Its hull is reminiscent of those from offshore racing and influenced the architecture of the first Class 40 and many current cruisers.
