On a guided tour, you can explore the bay of Cancale for half a day, or the Chausey islands with a stopover for a day. The most motivated will be able to participate in the manoeuvres with the crew, steering and hoisting the boat's many sails. No nautical skills are required. All that counts is the love of the sea and the pleasure of the open air.
