Our sea trial on nova jean! With Captain Phillip at the helm we set off to the beautiful island of Île d'Yeu 26 nautical miles north of here. After several hiccups with the channel exit and putting up the sails, we arrived at Plage des Vieilles. There we swam, snorkeled and ate lovely french baguette with cheese & salad.
On our return we had the pleasure of being accompanied by several dolphins who came over for a short play.
All up we were out 11 hours on a lovely sunny 37 degree day.
We are now settled into the marina for at least the next 2 weeks while the added aftermarket additions are being installed. Les sables d'olonne is such a beautiful city, we feel privileged to immerse ourselves in the local culture, spending most days exploring on our trusted Bill & Ben.
