... we had a light lunch of calamari and a prawn cocktail, then it was time to do the chores for the day. Tracey caught up with a bit of washing and I planned for our next stop which will be Roscoff on the Brittany coast, I'm thinking it should put us in a good position for rounding Ushant and entering Camaret where we will wait for a good 3 to 4 day weather window to cross the infamous Bay of Biscay!
