Tom, the Douarnenez festival is in midsummer but the new edition... not imminent. T'was this year to be. It is the other great festival for small boats. Can't you do something else to do then working in a classroom? Creative writing courses online? Work where there is Wifi?
Andrew, hope to see you next spring
Gilles, I think Laita is a great one person boat for the Fete.
