Prisoniers du Vent…

Last week we reported back to you, how we’d arrived – quite unexpectedly – in Camaret-sur-Mer and have been enjoying a holiday stay in Bretagne as true “Passagers du Vent”.
In the meantime we have been here for two and a half weeks and that little voice inside is now so much as “screaming” to continue on our journey! We have been planning on moving out at various occasions, taking advantage of any good weather window lasting for 3 to 4 days, but so far the wind is keeping us hostage in this lovely place. It looks like we have become “Prisoniers du Vent” rather.
So we are learning the deeper meaning of the concept of “Patience” and all of you who know us well, will be undoubtedly amused by this contraction in terms. True, we admit, patience is not amongst the strongest of values we were blessed with at birth. However, we are fast learners 😉
And luckily, we have enough common sense, insight and cautiousness to accept that we are at mercy of nature’s elements at all times, especially out here at sea. You don’t want to set forth towards A Coruna and cross the Golf of Biscay/Gascogne with wind gusts of 6 Beaufort and more in waves’ height of 2 to 3 meter.
Anyhow, so far so good, the weather forecast remains favourable still, so that at some point soon we will be able to sail on safely!
While waiting (un)patiently though, we enjoy bikini weather (at least I do…), happy hours and sundowners with fellow travelers. In that respect Bretagne is not all that different from the UK, nor from the sangria and serveza awaiting us in Spain.
There are still some certainties in sailing life after all 🙂 🙂 🙂

Cheers, Santé, Salut !!!
