Have sailed the Brittany coastline between St. Malo in the north all the way down to Lorient in the south, spending some days in the area between the Ile D'Ouessant (Ushant) and the Ile de Sain / Pointe du Raz. Of corse it was in early August with light winds and perfect blue skies. No overfalls but tremendous tidal currents. A truely breathtaking, rocky coastline with Â*lighthouses on many but not all rocks. Incredible that breaking seas and spray can cover the whole tower... Â*All of them are remote controlled now but not too long ago they had lighthouse keepers that had to endure this kind of weather. Â* Â* This
Â* Â* lighthouse Â*keeper Â*( on La Jument) was just taking a brief look for the helicopter but was able to close the door right in time!
