    Default Morbihan Semaine 2023

    Semaine du Golfe du Morbihan is coming back in May 2023. Over 800 boats registered so far, and counting. Many interesting wooden boats in the various flotillas. www.semainedugolfe.com .

    We will be there with our lugger Lucia in Flotille nr. 2, the sail and oar club. I saw Roger Barnes will be there too, and several French sailers that I met in The Netherlands this summer during The Extreme Raid, organized by Koos Winnips and Hubert Bakker. Are there more forumites coming to the Morbihan? The picnic in the middle of the week is a great way to find long lost friends we found.

    How I would love to do this one again - with 4 weeks away teaching at WBS in '23, not sure I can do it next year, but maybe I will shoot for 2025.

    A few from down here (Rochefort/La Rochelle) will be there. Mix of S&O and small cruisers. I will be showing off Frank's sails in my Micro derivative. Bit tempted to sail up there, rather than trail.
    First attended in '07 and on the pic-nic day it was too windy to sail, so ferried and walked down the island, getting absolutely sodden in the rain. Good food and company, found myself chatting to the guy that found Roger's Ilur for him.

    I’d love to go, too. Maybe I’ll go with you, Clint.

    Usually the French like to practice their English on visitors, and when we came boatless to Douarnenez in 1988 we were invited on two boats, a Swampscot Dory and later on a Canoe Yawl . Frank

    I can ask the dutch who go to the Morbihan if they can take people aboard. I will tell them that you are great guys and go to the same church as we do. Frank
