From Douarnenez

I am sitting here in the Winches Club in Douarnenez, on the map a little bit south of Brest. The weather is quite nice, in the 80s the last few days.

Tomorrow the MAP starts which is a 220 mile race along the coast. The present forecast does not show much in the way of wind until late on Saturday.

I had a nice delivery up here from Locmiquelic on Sunday, arriving early Monday morning as the wind was rather light. The pic was taken at sunset just south of the Pointe du Raz. I just made through the channel here as the tides run exceptionally strong here. For the Northwesterners, very similar to Race Rocks but possibly a little stronger. When I went through it was the beginning of the flood tide and I had 3 knots against me.
