07.08.14 – Bloscon to Camaret
True distance 65 Nm, final log reading 67.90 Nm. Departed Bloscon 0734 and arrived Camaret at 1930, although had to wait until 2000 for final berthing. Av O.G. 5.4 knots. Av O.W. 5.7 knots. Weather NW>V2,calm sea with sunny intervals. Motor sailed whole trip as no wind of any strength. Original plan was to stop overnight at L’Aberwrac’h but Hurricane Bertha was forecast to hit western Brittany Sunday – Monday 10th/11th, with predicted winds of F9. so decision made to press on as fast as reasonably possible. Camaret was chosen as the overnight stop and the Chenal du Four lighthouse passed at 1537, 50 minutes into the southerly stream. Passage through the Chenal was uneventful and a bit of a let down for our crew, who had been warned of its reputation! Berthed in Port Vauban marina, rafting to one other boat. Cost 25.08€ with 2€ for showers. Shops a very long walk!
