09.09.14 – Port Le Foret to Port Tudy
True distance 29 Nm, final log reading 30.14 Nm. (Via Port Manech). Departed PLF at 0830 (in hindsight a little late as only 0.5 under keel at times). Arrived Port Tudy (Ile de Groix) 1450. Av O.G. 4.7 knots. Av O.W. 4.9 knots. Weather mainly sunny with NE 3 > V2 (actual wind speed 5 knots or less). Motor sailed whole trip with diversion to visit entrance to the Aven and Belon rivers at Port Manech as we had taken our children Jonathan and Gemma there over 30 years ago, and I had dinghy sailed there around 45 years ago! Had hoped to pick up a mooring overnight but as we were still Springs we would have gone aground. Contacted Port Tudy and was told to come into inner harbour. Pontoon berths very tight and depth very shallow (we went aground at each low water). Facilities basic and cost high (27€) per night, but nice place to stay. We stayed two nights and hired bicycles to tour the island. Outer harbour is cheaper and more depth but need a dinghy to come ashore.
