Cruise Details Hello and welcome!
I propose you to participate in a 6-day discovery cruise of the famous Channel Islands .
From St Malo we will take the direction of Jersey, our stops will take us from Guernsey , through Herm and Sark , and if the weather is favorable we can push to Alderney . Then return to Saint-Malo.
Aboard the sailboat you can participate in all the maneuvers, according to your desires or you settle comfortably and observe at leisure the fauna and the surrounding flora. On shore, you can fully enjoy the moment, you have the choice to go hiking, sightseeing, or just relax on the beach. This program is subject to change by the skipper depending on the weather conditions.
Itinerary and roll out of the cruise :
1st day :
Departure from St Malo in the morning to Jersey. Stopover in Jersey and small discovery hike through the island. Exceptional shot and photo of the famous lighthouse of Corbière and passage near the castle Elisabeth.
2nd day :
Departure depending on the currents and heading to Guernsey 17 miles away or 4 hours of navigation. A new stop on the ground to discover there is the most beautiful island of the Channel Islands. To see the magnificent castle of Cornet and Fort Gray, or visit Hauteville House, the house where stayed Victor Hugo during his exile.
3rd day :
After a night spent at anchor or at the port, you can stop at Herm for lunch and swim at the beach or stroll on the island, then anchor at the wonderful island of Sark.
4th day :
Visit Sark, an island far from everything, which was still led by a lord until 2009. No car but carriages, no bus but carriages, no bitumen but dirt roads. To see the famous cut, narrow path of 3m overlooking the sea on both sides over 80m, the window on the rock, the gardens of the Seigneurie, the starry sky devoid of light pollution. These are some aspects of this island from another time. At the end of the day, depending on the currents among the most powerful, we can sail to Alderney.
5th day :
Stop on the ground and visit the island such as Fort Clonque and Fort Tourgis. Then return to Sark or Jersey.
6th day :
Back to St Malo through the beautiful Chausey, the opportunity may be to see some seals and dolphins.
Ready for a wonderful sailing experience? Let's go aboard departure is near!
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.
