At the end of summer 2021 we sail Arruno from the Azores back to Belgium. A trip, if we do this non-stop of 1.500 nm. To create a nice experience between ocean sailing and enjoying the surroundings on the way, we will divide this route in 3 parts:

All along the Breton and Normandy coasts...

The last part of the route is intended for shorter trips. Mainly we do daytrips along the many idyllic harbours and anchorages of Brittany and Normandy. As we pass the Channel Islands, a stop is also planned here.

 

Daytrips also mean that there will probably be sailed every day, possibly, depending on the time, the stops and the meteo, we will also have to make a nighttrip. As a team, we can all consider this together.

 

Which intermediate stops we take, where we stay, does not immediately play a significant role, after 10 days we are expected at the Belgian coast.

 

Challenging on these coasts are the currents, tides and rocks. The currents and tides will mainly determine our departure and arrival times. A tide of up to 14 metres ensures that approaching and leaving ports are limited in time. Sea currents, from a few knots to 7 knots at the Race of Alderney, are impressive and can be to your advantage at any time.

 

When we are in a harbour almost every day it also means that we can enjoy the local specialities, enjoy the scenery, enjoy that glass of wine (or something else) or the "fruit de mer", enjoy a walk. "Inspire" in its full form.

 

Some practical things:
  • This route is sailed with Arruno
  • Brest can be reached by TGV, there is a direct connection from Paris. Flights are also available.
  • There are overnight stays in ports as well as anchoring if the situation permits.
  • Because we are regularly ashore, we can also arrange groceries in this way. We do not have to take all the things from day one.
