Major navigation hazard at Mont St. Michel

I had a great day at Mont St. Michel yesterday. The weather was glorious and the sail down wasn't too bad. However, I almost ran aground on some very nasty granite boulders that have recently been placed near the slipway to prevent erosion of the Couesnon river bank during the flushing phases of the new barrage. These boulders cannot be seen until they're uncovered and present a real danger to anyone visiting Mont St. Michel by sea. If you plan to go there at some point then get in touch and I'll give you some suggestions as to where to leave your boat.

Well noted, thanks

If you can send me the pic of your boat against the wall I will put it in the local rag; if that is ok?
