cruising to north brittany

I am planning to tour brittany between St Malo,Paimpol and
Lannion while we are staying in a rented cottage this summer.
Has anyone toured with their rib along this bit of coast?
Any suggestions ? could I base my boat up the river at Treguier?

Do a search and locate the thread about our cruise to St Malo in September 2002. There is a problem in getting fuel in the St Malo marina . The pumps only accept French credit cards and there is also a very low limit . I expect this is the same in other marinas but perhaps somebody else may advise here

By the way a great place to go to . We had one hell of a time and you can read all about in in the two threads

Hi Chris,

Charles is your man for this stretch of coast.

For what it's worth, we spent a night at Treguier last June on a rag 'n stick job, so our requirements were different to what yours will be. Pretty quiet, not many restaurants open at 21.30 and then we had to go foraging up the hill into the town but visitors berths available on finger pontoons. There's no actual harbour there and no idea of launch sites, but would assume there would be something suitable in the vicinity. On balance, I would say that Treguier is a good place from a security point of view to base your boat because it is so quiet.

We liked Paimpol very much. Atmospheric, good places to eat & drink but much bigger & busier than Treguier and the first week in June when we were there, they had a bloody fair on the harbour wall. Under those circumstances, I wouldn't feel comfortable basing my boat there for a week and probably wouldn't choose to anyway because of the locking in and out, but apart from that, excellent.

Please write it up after the event to let us know how you get on.

Brian

Thank you Andre and Brian, I was only thinking of Treguier because it is near to where we will be staying and without the water disappearing every few hours. I understand buying fuel
may be harder than it should be, I can probably collect enough on the way past St peter port to last the week.
cheers

Chris.
