Brighton Belle in La Rochelle

After sailing some 1200+ NM from the Punta Delgada, Azores. The twin towers at the entrance to La Rochelle's Vieux Port provided a memorable entrance to the harbour. The two large towers were built in the fourteenth century , 'La Chaîne' in the West and 'Saint Nicholas' in the east.

During that period there were chains strung between the towers so the entrance was blocked to combat danger. Fortunately Brighton Belle did not need to navigate past any chains. 

The crew were rewarded by several nights right in the Bassin Des Chalutiers right in the heart of the old part of the city.
