Where to Sail
Corsica is a French Mediterranean island west of Italy. The distance between the Strait of Bonifacio in the south of Corsica and Sardinia is only 12 km. It's the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean. The island has a 1200 km long coastline, which is made up of rocky coasts, bays and beaches. Along the coastline, there is a good amount of ports and marinas. On the Southeast coast, there are many beautiful bays where you can drop anchor, whilst on the West side, the ports and bays are fewer and not that sheltered. The Strait of Bonifacio is a dream destination for sailors, as there is always a sailing wind. It is worth a trip to the Maddalena Archipelago, a stunning group of islands off the North coast of Sardinia. The islands of Lavezzi, Monaci, Bruzzi and Cerbicale have bizarre natural formations, countless bays and white sandy beaches. Brittany - If you are looking for an exciting sailing trip with rugged coastlines and varied tides, you should definitely try sailing in Brittany, which is divided into two distinct areas. The northern region of Brittany includes the area of St. Malo on the English Channel, the Channel islands Jersey and Guernsey and as far as the Ile d’Ouessant, where the famous lighthouse photo by the French photographer Philippe Plisson was taken. If you choose to sail in the Western region of Brittany, then Arzon is an excellent place to explore the Atlantic coast of France. The two major marinas in this area are Port du Crouesty and the famous, La Trinité-sur-Mer, which lies in the bay of Quiberon. Brittany, especially in the North, is more demanding than in the Southern coast and requires higher level skills. Tides and wind conditions should be taken under consideration. Martinique and Guadeloupe - Martinique's capital, Fort de France, celebrates every aspect of French culture with style and panache – from the excellence of its cuisine to the chic sophistication of its fine resorts, hotels, and shops. The perfect combination of the West Indies's culture with the French unique way of life. Le Marin is the most known marina there, which is set at the end of a beautiful lagoon. You will find all the facilities you need; well-stocked chandleries, a supermarket, and restaurants. Guadeloupe is part of the Leeward Islands, but stands out from the crowd because of its butterfly shape. The eastern wing, Grand-Terre, features Pointe-à-Pitre, the island’s biggest city and centre of tourism. The western wing, called Basse-Terre, is less developed and dominated by a national park. A narrow channel called the Salt River separates the two halves of the island. There are rolling fields of sugarcane and buzzing rainforests, which are home for many r rare animal species. Snorkellers and divers will be captivated by the variety of marine and coral life in the pristine azure waters that surround the islands. Foodies will delight in the delicious and distinctive cuisine, which blends French and Creole influences. The mix of African, European, and East Indian cultures makes for a melting pot of charm and excitement.
