Granville to Isles Chausey 2018-05-30 From Granville across to the Iles Chausey. The Iles Chausey are basically a "bunch of rocks" off the French coast. Apparently there are 365 islands at low tide. With a the ten metre tidal range when we were there, there are a whole lot less at high tide. Most of the photos are at low tide - showing The Sound that runs to the east of the main island. The approach requires some reasonably careful pilotage and then lying to the fore/aft moorings available in the Sound. The earlier photos show some very tall navigation marks at low water - look in the later photos which are closer to high water and they only just appear above the water!
St Helier to Granville, France 2018-05-28 From St Helier on Jersey across to Granville in France. We were joined by dolphins briefly - very large ones - but as they disappeared quite quickly it became more fun watching the people watching for dolphins! Then on via the Ilse Chausey - more later on them in this blog - and then on to Granville in France. Played with the cruising chute for the first time on this cruise. Granville is an old walled town - a little like St Malo along the coast - but not so crowded. The marina, like many on the French coast, has a cill and at low water the approach to Granville completely dries out.
