Stuart thanks a lot buddy
The area will mainly involve St. Nazaire to Lorient with trips to the islands (Belle Ile, Ile Dumet, Houat and Hoedic). We'd be very grateful for the relevant charts and to see yourselves if ye are around on Sat?
Brian it would be brill if you made it ! Thank you, yes we did communicate with Florence and Philippe via the pneuboat website last year. Just need to log on again when we've got some more details. Hope to meet up with them again, perhaps via yourself?
Charles, the plan is to get to Southern Brittany by peeps' chosen methods (to be discussed!) in a smallish and manageable group and then base ourselves there so we can explore the waters and islands (which Paul and I visited last year -still to be written up!!!)
Ile Dumet is near the coast but Belle Isle and the others (slightly longer trips) are very beautiful also. The idea is to explore the coast and pretty harbours and perhaps have a look beyond La Baule area to the South.
Once again, many thanks for your comments and queries as this will help us to plan. Please add any advice you've got?
Kathleen and Paul
