The cruise

Climb on board with Patrick for a weekend cruise departing from La Rochelle. Your professional skipper will give you an incredible two day experience in the Pertuis Charentais sound.
This cruise is aimed at both beginners and experienced sailors.
From the old port of La Rochelle, you'll sail towards the island of Oléron to enjoy exceptional panoramic views.



Your possible stops during this cruise

On Saturday morning you'll meet Patrick at 9.30am in the old port of La Rochelle.
Once on board the yacht, the captain will explain all necessary safety rules to you, discuss your journey's itinerary and then... cast off! It's time to leave for two unforgettable days at sea!

You'll leave the port of La Rochelle which is known worldwide, in particular for its three famous towers.
Then you'll sail towards the island of Oléron. To the south of La Rochelle, this is the island near the famous Fort Boyard! In Oléron, Patrick will lead you to discover the most beautiful anchoring spots around the island. You can also disembark to explore on dry land! Take advantage of the extraordinary natural surroundings to unwind.

You'll sleep in the port that evening. You can make the most of this to enjoy a seafood platter in one of the small port restaurants.

On Sunday, you'll head back to sea to return to La Rochelle. During the day you'll be able to enjoy magnificent views over a dazzling, sheltered body of water. These conditions are ideal for a good introduction to a cruising yacht.

You'll return to the port of La Rochelle at around 5pm. Tidy up, clean the yacht, and say goodbye!

The Cruise :Très bien en tout point, j'aurais aimé que la journée du dimanche dure plus longtemps encore. . .

The Skipper :Excellente skipper, prudente, professionnelle et très pédagogue. Fabienne, sans en avoir l'apparence, est un vrai loup de mer. On comprend très vite qu'en montant sur son bateau, l'aventure commence, que chaque mot compte, dans l'intelligence de la situation et un rapport à l'autre respectueux et bienveillant. Sa passion pour la mer est contagieuse.. .

Best memories :Je me souviens avoir fait un cap avec un compas comme dans les temps anciens, avoir hissé la grande voile, avoir largué les amarres, avoir eu le mal de mer, avoir tenu la barre franche, avoir fait un noeud, l'avoir refait plusieurs fois, avoir senti les embruns, avoir aimé la capitainerie d'Oléron, avoir mangé des huîtres sur le bateau, avoir aimé ça. . .

We are pretty sure that...
