Yeah we trailered our old 4m down there a couple of times, wonderfully interesting area.

With the 4m there was plenty to explore inside the golfe but with a 6.5 you would get bored after a couple of days but there are loads of places around such as Quiberon and Belle Ile, Ile Groix, and down to St Nazaire etc.

There is loads to see. We took ours to La Trinite marina the first time but while there discovered crouesty marina on the tip of the "sticky outy bit". Massive marina with loads of space and I think a camp site close by. Plenty of space for trailer around the marina too. Much more practical than LTS/M

If you need anything else don't hesitate to ask

If it can make it this time

But yes, will be going as far as possible in that direction in August. Try and do the Normandy beaches and perhaps get all the way up to Calais.

Have you got your dates planned yet? Would be good to have that fishing lesson sometime...

Google reckons 6 hours, probably more. That's a lot of journey. I've done Calais - St malo a few times with no boat and that's bad enough.

You would be much better off with the Portsmouth - St Malo overnight ferry on the way out then the ferry we find best on the way back (St malo is all day on the way back) if the Caen ferry. Leaves at 16:30 each day so you could leave early/mid morning to get there which is much more civilised. Depends how far you are from Portsmouth I suppose as it gets in quite late but there's no traffic at that time.

We drove back home (without a trailer) from that area last year when Brittany Ferries had a strike on the French side. It looked a really nice place for boating.

If I remember rightly, it took around seven hours with three drivers and two very short stops on the way. That was from Le FaouŽt, so about 3/4 of an hour longer than from the Golfe du Morbihan.

(The idea was to get the Roscoff-Plymouth ferry. What we ended up doing was 13 hours' driving from Brittany to Calais, then Dover to Exeter.)

Looks like we may actually be going again this year, but we would be boating round as we don't have a trailer. It's about 250nm from us around, so 3 days hard work should do it. We are looking at going from right at the end of August, and spending about a week then coming back at a more leisurely pace. So we would be there from 2nd - 11th September.
