Suwena's Sailing Plan for the summer of 2016

We’ve now been sailing for eight seasons and over 9200 nautical miles in 17 different countries. Our basic philosophy is still the same: sailing forward each season looking for a new sailing areas.

Our original summer plan was to keep sailing in Brittany and then sail around the northwest corner of Brittany called Finistère. We were thinking to continue hugging the coast of Biskay and leave her wintering in Europe’s biggest marina in La Rochelle. To our surprise there was a 15 month waiting time for the berth and the price was one and a half times higher than Roscoff, so we remade our summer plans.

Actually it started to feel that we’d like to have a different summer. There are still a lot to see in Brittany and many local sailors have given us very good sailing tips. Maybe we should explore the coast of Brittany in more detail.

Last summer we liked the Channel Islands a lot and due to lack of time we missed Alderney, Sark and Herm completely.

Suwena also has a good berth in Roscoff so she will spend another winter in familiar environment.

Usually we make quite a detailed plan for supporting our schedule. This summer we let the wind and feelings decide our sailing direction in Brittany and the Channel Islands.

You can again follow Suwena’s adventures in the blog and we can together sail on the waves of the sea.
