Off to Brittany

It was a quiet crossing yesterday from Salcombe to Roscoff, with blue skies almost all the way. Isle de Batz, off Roscoff, only revealed itself through the haze when we were a few miles off. Then the solid friendly beacons of the French coast fell into place and led us in past rocky islets to the marina. Arriving at low tide (the range here is several metres) the harbour walls look colossal.

Tintin's engine had a good warm up to start the season and didn't miss a beat. We hope for more wind in due course but the settled calm weather will allow us to explore the islands along this coast more.

Today, birthday lunch in Roscoff
