The cruise

Set sail with Fabienne for two unforgettable days in the Pertuis Charentais sound.

Whether your'e a beginner or a more experienced sailor, Fabienne will be there to give you an epic sailing experience. So, lift the anchor and unwind for a weekend!

From the old port of La Rochelle, you'll sail towards the island of Ré and take advantage of your professional skipper's knowledge to perfect your skills.

According to the weather conditions and the preferences of those on board, it's also possible to sail to Oléron or Aix.

Your possible stops during this cruise

On Saturday, Fabienne will meet you at 9.30am in the old port. You'll then leave for two incredible days on board her yacht. Memories guaranteed!

Your pro skipper will explain the rules for safety at sea, how the yacht works, and answer any questions. Fabienne always says that "it's better to ask a question and risk looking stupid for 5 minutes than not ask it and remain ignorant for the rest of your life". (Find out more about Fabienne by clicking here).

Following this short briefing, you'll take to the sea to sail towards the island of Ré. This marine natural park is ideal for those who want to have their first introduction to how a yacht works.
This body of water, light and sheltered, offers you amazing panoramic views.
The island of Ré has been connected to the mainland by a bridge since 1988 which has allowed it to develop its tourism industry. Despite this, this island has managed to retain its authenticity and is often known as 'White Ré' because of the colour of its traditional houses.
If you wish, you can disembark to take a break and look around the small port of Saint-Martin-de-Ré to discover the charm of this small marina.

On Sunday, you'll be able to decide the exact itinerary with your captain and perfect your sailing manoeuvres!

You will return to the port of La Rochelle at 5pm. After tidying up and cleaning the boat, you'll leave Fabienne with your head full of extraordinary memories!
Note that the timings may be changed according to high tides.
