You step on board in this capital of the red wines. After dinner and instructions you can have a look in this very interesting town. Next morning we leave and sail over the brown-red Gironde river with strong tidal effects. Once past the Cordouan lighthouse we get into very clear ocean water where we sail to the extreme west of France. The stops are decided with the current weather predictions. They could be Belle Ile, Concarneau, Ile de Sein, Douarnenez and Camaret sur Mer.
