Agreed Grandcamp can be a bit 'smelly' when they're gathering the seaweed. Did the Normandy coast about 20 years ago in a yacht. Started at Le Havre and stayed at Ouistreham and a few others finishing in St Vaast before heading back across the Channel. Anchored for lunch inside the Mulberry Harbour or whats left of it. Interesting stretch of coast. Plan for next year is to follow the same route but in the RIB.

Fascinating sights underwater as well, I have swum along lines of Sherman tanks just waiting to drive off the landing craft they are on

Hi Brian, I remember it well......I was concerned that Cyanide may have suffered an electrical failure and that, without any lights, we could run into her in the darkness. Think we all gained a bit of "experience" that day !

Landlord, The Granitiere used to offer the best accommodation but it's a fair hack to get there, particularly if you're carrying a bag and have wet boat gear. The Café Du Port used to offer a decent bar, a good restaurant and comfortable accommodation on the quayside. It's much more convenient if people need to nip back to the boat for any reason and you're in the heart of town for other bars/restaurants etc, rather than being on the outskirts.

Having stayed at both, not recently I would add, the CdP would be my choice.

We'll be in the area for most of August, if you want me to check anything out, just say.
