The cruise

Take to the open sea with Fabienne for a day trip exploring the Pertuis Charentais. Your professional skipper will give you the opportunity to sail from La Rochelle towards either the island of Ré or Oléron according to the weather conditions and the preferences of those on board. This sailing trip is an excellent way to disconnect and to discover life on board a yacht. Enjoy marine landscapes, new sensations and fresh, sea air!
For those who want to perfect or begin with their sailing skills, Fabienne will be pleased to give you useful advice.

Your possible stops during this cruise

Fabienne will meet you at 9am in the old port of La Rochelle to introduce you to how the yacht works, the itinerary, a few on board rules and of course to answer any of your questions.

You'll then set sail towards the beautiful islands of Ré, Aix, or Oléron. The Pertuis Charentais sound is ideal for those who want to sail on a yacht for the first time. A calm beginning in magnificent surroundings which have a very special light. Fabienne is very attentive and will be able to explain anything you want to know about life on board, manoeuvres, navigation tools...

You'll then arrive at the island of Ré with its beautiful white houses. Ré has kept its authenticity despite being well-known. Its beaches are some of the most beautiful in France. It's also possible to take a break on land to visit the beautiful port of Saint Martin de Ré, tide permitting.

You'll return to La Rochelle at around 5pm. Don't forget to help Fabienne tidy up and clean the boat before leaving.

The Cruise :C'était une croisière d'une journée. Nous désirions naviguer le plus possible aussi Fabienne nous a proposé de ne pas faire d'escale pour le pique-nique. Le bateau est beau et très fonctionnel avec un cockpit spacieux et confortable. Le bateau est maniable, agréable et rassurant même quand le vent forcit. Pour une journée, le plan d'eau est bien exposé avec des paysages variés (Fort Boyard, tour de l'ile d'Aix , ile de Ré en passant sous le pont). Nous avons dormi la veille dans le bateau, qui est à un bon emplacement dans le vieux port, avec vue sur les tours .

The Skipper :Fabienne a un abord très facile. Elle s'est adaptée immédiatement et tout naturellement au niveau de voile de chacun. Elle explique bien. Elle permet d'être actif sur le bateau sans stress et sans obligation. Nous avons apprécié qu'elle explique comment anticiper les manoeuvres. Nous avons aussi contemplé la mer, qui était verte. Nous avons aussi discuté de nos vies et sympathisé.

We are pretty sure that...
