GPS Trace

A clear out of the GPS  revealed the trace of the trip to Île d’Ouessant. The route out is via Île Molene, this required a 2 hour wait on Molene for the currents to reduce to a practical level.  We crossed the Fromveur channel when the currents had reduced to 4 knots;

The return trip was more straightforward, leaving the island with the last of the flood and after a short period of slack water, taking the south setting ebb stream back to le conquet.
A major crux point is positioning at the entrance to le conquet harbour……. we were moving at 14kph and it required  an accurate breakout to avoid missing the harbour entrance
