Weather NNE 6-9 knots (Meteo France) Sunny. Sea state slight. Viz good. Marina person waiting to guide us to a berth. However, it was (unknown to us), Paimpol fair week and the whole marina was surrounded by a very large and noisy fairground that started at 2100 and finished at 0100.  Winter rate of €17.40 charged because of the fair. Had planned to stay two nights, but left with the morning tide!. Interesting approach and exit!
