The fleet has a smooth passage to St-Quay-Portrieux

It may have been a soggy start to the day but as the fleet motored to St-Quay-Portrieux the rain cleared making way for a flat sea.

We are now back in France following a smooth passage from St Helier. Thankfully on the way the dark clouds lifted just long enough for us to photograph a few of the boats underway. Hopefully we’ll catch the others at some point over the next few days.

Once everyone was safely moored up Claire and I wasted no time in popping out for a few essentials – you know, bread, cheese and some pain au chocolat. Well, when in France…

And we weren’t the only ones, we arrived back on the pontoon to find Graham and Penny from Capriccio had joined Simon and Tricia from Sea Breeze on their flybridge for sundowners and the tipple in their glasses looked suspiciously like Champagne.

Tomorrow we plan to move on again, this time to Paimpol where we hope to spend a couple of nights.
