Journey Aboard a Traditional Sailing Boat
A Daily trip to the Glenan islands with a Sailboat
Come aboard the “Corentin”, a stately Breton traditional sailing boat, and discover true paradise in the middle of the ocean. Raise the sails of this three masts, join in with the navigation and enjoy a wonderful experience with our ocean-loving skippers.
After a two-hour crossing to the Glénan Islands, you will reach your free-time stop-over on the island of Saint Nicolas. Take a stroll around the island, rent a kayak (book in advance), have a picnic, relax on the beach, go snorkelling: you will have plenty of time to enjoy this peaceful place. In the evening, you will return to Concarneau on our ship (one-hour crossing).
More about the “Corentin” sailing boat
The “Corentin” has an exceptional length of 32 metres. It is an exact replica of former 18th-19th century trading boats. It can be recognised by its three masts and a thin yellow stripe running along its black hull. This boat was built and launched in Quimper, and was called “Corentin” after the patron saint of the town and of its cathedral.
For a long time, the centre of Quimper was a great seaport. Nowadays, the port has exclusively historical use. However, the “Corentin” sailing boat often spends the winter months anchored alongside the Henriot ceramics factory.
Departures from Concarneau marina only, from 12th June to 26th August 2018.
