Cruising in Brittany

Filed under: Cruising,Photographic archive,Uncategorized — Tim @ 3:28 pm

Rob Williams took his boat, Shorehugger, with his family to Quiberon Bay in Brittany in August 2017.
In August he wrote from Quiberon Bay where Admiral Hawke prevented an invasion and sent two pictures taken by Lara.
I’ve been dilatory in posting them but maybe now is a good time to encourage you to make similar, even if less ambitious plans for 2018!

 

In the first picture you can see the Ecole Nationale de Voile people having a race in the background – in the second Rob is chatting to a cuttle-fisherman who was 53 just like Shorehugger. They were often coming in from their boats when Rob picked up the kids from the beach for a sail.

Once again thanks to Kath Davis, who time after time produces a great read.
