26 May : Three Fareham boats have set-off for Vannes.
Croisière de jumelage à Vannes, 2019
A party of boats and sailors has again been invited to sail to Vannes in Brittany in 2019 as part of the twinning of Vannes and Fareham. This will be the 10th such exchange.
We will be welcomed into Vannes on 24th June and depart on 29th June, and the cost of participation in the events in Vannes will be £120 per head. During our stay, we will be hosted by French families, enjoy convivial company both French and English, and visit local places of interest, not least the beautiful town of Vannes itself.
The Introductory Evening for the Cruise on 22 May resulted in 21 boats expressing interest in making the trip to Vannes.
A briefing for Skippers and Crews took place at Hill Head Sailing Club on 1st May.
There is a limit on the number of boats and participants, so if you are interested in cruising to Vannes, please let me know very soon so I can keep you in touch with developments.
