Baie de Seine 5 day sailing trip £590 per person
September 27, 2019 @ 9:30 am - October 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm£590
Starts and ends Chichester Harbour
Skipper: Dhara Thompson
This trip will involve two channel crossings, aiming for the Saturday market in St-Vaast-la-Hogue on the eastern side of the Cotenin peninsula. The approaches to St Vaast dry out and it can only be entered on the tide, but it is a fine sheltered harbour with lots of character. The tides during the dates of this trip will allow us to do some day sailing out of St Vaast, such as around the Iles St Marcouf. This coastline offers protection form the prevailing southwesterlies and we will have the option to head further south to explore the town of Caretan, again reached only on the tide and someway inland. Depending on crew and conditions we can make a circuit to Honfleur or Le Havre before the return home. Plenty of opportunity to refine tidal calculations and pilotage during this trip! Ideally we would meet onboard in Chichester harbour on the evening of Thursday 26th September for an early start on the Friday.
