We had a great two weeks sailing along the English coast from Falmouth to Salcombe, the Channel Islands and the North French coast.
We could not believe our luck weather wise, a perfect sunrise welcomed us as we set sail early Sunday morning.
We sailed along the English coast to Salcombe.We arrived during the regatta week with small sailing vessels cutting across our path at every angle.
Our next destination was the Channel Islands. We were welcomed to Guernsey by our 4th pod of dolphins. We have never seen so many dolphins in one sailing holiday.
From Guernsey we visited a surprisingly quiet Sark. This small rugged island seemed a little out of sorts compared to previous trips. After a steep climb from our mooring we enjoyed exploring this eccentric island.
From Sark we travelled to Jersey. The Port at St Helier is guarded by Elizabeth Castle.
We wandered along the coast towards St Aubin. The pictures show the terrific tidal ranges experienced for most of this holiday. Every departure and arrival had to be carefully planned.
From Jersey we sailed to Ile de Brehat on the Northern Brittany coast. We are fond of this french island. It is very popular with French tourists who arrive daily aboard vedettes. It never really feels crowded though and the day trippers depart early evening.
We sailed along the french coast to Trebuerden.
