Passagers du vent…

We have been enjoying Camaret-sur-Mer for 12 days, and it seems we are here to stay until Tuesday or Wednesday. Camaret is a great place, but that little voice within us is whispering that it is time to move on. We need stable weather for three days to make a safe passage to A Coruna. At the moment we are under the influence of a trough associated with a low pressure zone between Iceland and the British Isles. Strong wind is expected in the Golf de Gascogne tonight and tomorrow. Reading weather charts is a new skill we have to acquire. Everyday practice helps and we seek advice from Fritz Buyl, a professional meteorologist in Belgium.
In the meantime life goes on in Camaret. We have the impression we don’t do much and yet time flies. We enjoy walking in the beautiful nature surrounding us. The views are stunning. And so are the sunsets when they put the sky on fire. More yachts here are waiting for a weather window to go to A Coruna. Our neighbours from the sy “Erminig” also want to go, to eventually reach the French Antilles. We found a shop here in the village with a banner saying “passagers du vent”. I guess that is what we are, ‘des passagers du vent'”.
