Hello,

Whilst I am learning French (and my wife is learning Spanish) I am not good enough to type and make sense, so google translate will do for now. Hopefully when I am further in my studies I will be better.

My wife and I started sailing full time this year and finished our jobs, for somewhere not as wet and cold as England. Our plan is for this year to end in Morocco. This summer we will be traveling the channel and moving into the Atlantic coast of France, Spain and Portugal.

We are hoping to be in France around July/August although we have not got the exact dates in yet, we travel with the wind.
This link shows our very rough travel plans and we will update it as we get closer to each step.

I hope that we will see some of you along our journey and please we welcome advice on local anchorages and places to visit. We are very happy to see other feelings and welcome the company if you will have us.

Our MMSI number is 232019606 for AIS.

Thank you!

Hello Andrew,
thank you for sharing your sailing project with the Feeling community. I hope you will meet with many Feeling owners in France, and that you will have good drinks together ! A nice way to be recognized is to set the Club Feeling flag in your rigging. clubfeeling1090.fr/pavillon-b
I will be sailing around the Britany coast this summer, and I will pay attention to find Freebird around !
A pity you are not soon enough in Concarneau (last weekend of may), as you would have participated to the Club Feeling meeting.
Do you have a web site or facebook to relate your year sailing trip ?
We wish you all the best during this sailing year, a very unique experience !

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for sharing your plans with us;

Don't hesitate to update our Community on the Positions Report feed for English Channel / Atlantic Coast here below :
clubfeeling1090.fr/forum/navigations/993...nche-atlantique#5234

As Gerard mentioned in his post, flying a Club Feeling flag will notify our members and ease meetings along your anchorages/stops.

As you may know, Northern part of Brittany from Brehat Isl. to Ushant is really nice; I would also advise Baie de Morlaix / Roscoff, despite being challenging technically wise, as scattered with semi-drying rocks and shoals; there is a recent deep- water marina in the NW side in Roscoff with lots of services.
There are also marked (leading marks) and buoyed channels to reach the southern part;

Anyhow, Sure you will find your way by meeting people along your journey;

Enjoy !
Nicolas
