Hi,
Anybody familiar with Penmarch and La Torche areas in Brittany - think the beaches there are supposed to be good ? Any ribs out there in August ?

Home territory for me!
Penmarc'h is one of those areas you have to know well - the tides and outlying rocks around Pte de Penmarc'h (in front of the lighthouse) are lethal and best given a very wide berth. The channel into Le Guilvinec is a bit better, but don't play games of "right of way" when the trawlers are coming in or out.
The beaches in the Baie are superb, but very exposed, and vulnerable to wind or weather changes. Penmarc'h suffers from fog as well.
Much better is a few miles up the coast at Audierne, sheltered harbour town with excellent launching and right in the middle of the Baie, so a reasonable run down to Penmarc'h if the weather's good, or for a bit more excitement go the other way and have a play in the Raz du Sein. Just round the corner and you're into the Baie d'Dournanez, which is a massive well sheltered playground and very popular.
Heading the other way, take the boat round to Benodet but that will be much busier.
Drop me a PM if you want my number for a chat.

Hi Ya and Thankyou - i wasn't sure on getting a reply so this is all good info.

We are going back to Le Letty near Benodet in Auguist. We are familiar with the Baie de la foret, glenans, concarneau, obviously Benodet etc but the farthest we got in the other direction was a trip to Loctudy and not much beyond. I would like to explore up that way a bit more this year as it looks good and I would welcome any info on places to go and the difficulties in getting there by rib.....?

Hi Mark, why not ask your question on the English speaking part of the CapBreizh forum http://www.capbreizh.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=25

You will find all you need to know about slipways here: http://www.capbreizh.com/cales/maritime/29/cales.htm

Here is an example navigation in the baie de Douarnenez http://www.capbreizh.com/reportages/...2006_05_08.htm

And here is Audierne and l'ile de Sein: http://www.capbreizh.com/reportages/...2006_05_07.htm
