Day 3 Normandy Shakedown Cruise

A rest day in Cherbourg


49°38.74N 001°37.21W

Today was a rest day for the fleet in Cherbourg. The sun shone, the wind stayed away and the shops were shut. Sunday is still very much a day of rest this side of the Channel, so crews wandered around deserted streets or visited ‘La Cité De La Mer’, Cherbourg’s maritime museum.

The plan for tomorrow is to depart Cherbourg early afternoon and head for St Vaast. Any thoughts of an early morning shopping fix were scuppered when it was announced that Monday is a bank holiday in France.
