Here are tentative plans for this season, based on the UK government’s roadmap for easing coronavirus restrictions. Please email me to say which trips you’d like to join.
The key remaining date for us in the roadmap is:
No earlier than 19 July – All restrictions lifted and international travel allowed. However, whether we can sail to France will depend on the state of restrictions there.
23-25 July Douarnenez Temps Fête
Douarnenez in southern Brittany, which had to cancel its biannual Temps Fête last year, is planning a small gathering of traditional boats on 23rd-25th July which I’d love to join if it’s practical to sail to France.
Otherwise, we’ll look at the weather and perhaps sail to Scilly or the Channel Islands.
Join the boat in Plymouth on 20th July to sail across the Channel on 21st-22nd. We should be back in Plymouth by Friday 30th.
21-22 August Fêtes Binic
Binic in northern Brittany has a similar idea for the weekend of 21st-22nd August in place of their usual May festival. If Covid restrictions allow, we could make this the centrepiece of a late summer cruise in Brittany.
