This is the second of two weeks pottering around the beautiful coastline and islands of Loire-Atlantique and the Vendée.

The plan is to start the week in Pornic ("the pearl of the Jade coast", a pretty town nestled around an old harbour) and end in Pornichet for handover to the next skipper. Both towns have transport links from and to Nantes - final details be discussed once we know who's coming from where and going on to where next!

As ever, our route will be weather-dependent and we'll make it up as we go along. We'll have a wealth of beautiful destinations to choose from. To the south lie Noirmoutier-en-l'Île, Île d'Yeu and beyond are Les Sables-d'Olonne, Île de Ré and La Rochelle. To the north are Île-d'Houat, Belle-Île-en-Mer, Quiberon and the Gulf of Morbihan. We'll be spoilt for choice!

This cruise runs Friday to Friday, as the flight connections to and from Nantes are more convenient:

9/6/23: EasyJet dep. Gatwick 13:50, arr. Nantes 16:15
16/6/23: EasyJet dep. Nantes 16:45, arr Gatwick 17:05
