Bateau Cap Sizun
Communauté de communes du cap sizun
The owl and the pussycat went to sea in a sieve - but at Audierne your craft is known as a 'cul-de-poule', or mixing bowl! This traditional boat has a magnificent hull, deep and tapering at the stern.
As a former lobster boat, the Cap Sizun offers you comfort with plenty of space. The ten passengers and four crew members move easily amongst the ropes when it's time to hoist the sails. "We're here to enjoy ourselves," says Fred, the skipper, speaking with a strong Breton accent. You have three hours to discover old-style sailing. The typical hull bespeaks the history of fishing and the lives of the sailors of yesteryear. A short distance away, the magnificent Bay of Audierne lies before you. Sailing along the coast you can contemplate this jewel of the Breton coastline. Sand and pebble bars hem 'Bigouden' country, as Finistère is sometimes known. After Pors-Poulhan harbour, the dunes of Tronoën appear, and the water is peppered with surfers. As you approach La Torche, it's time to turn around. What, already?!
