Les Plus Grandes Marées d'Europe

Les Plus Grandes Marées d'Europe

mardi, 22 mars 2011

Les Plus Grandes Marées d’Europe! Phénoménale…. Un coef de 118 et un marnage de plus de 13m lundi 21 mars à St Malo. C’est impressionnant. La topographie de la Baie de Mont St Michel fait que c’est ici ou on voie les plus grandes marées d’Europe. Pendant ces grandes marées des bancs de sable et de vase, et des rochers normalement couverts offrent aux enthousiastes de fruits de mer toutes sortes de coquillages. La pêche a pied est toujours populaire ici, et quand la grande marée tombe sur un weekend,…. qu’il y a du monde sur les plages ! Surtout que là ce weekend il a fait très beau. Le soleil était bien au rendez-vous, même si la température était toujours printanière. Je n’avais pas le temps d’aller jusqu’aux Iles Chausey mais des amis étaient très contents de leur pêche. Dans le marina des Bas Sablons le seuil se découvre à 2m des cartes et maintient donc un niveau d’eau dans le bassin. Mais malgré ca on remarque bien la différence entre mer haute et basse ! En Rance, contrôlé par le barrage marémotrice les nivaux ne sont pas vraiment sortis de l’ordinaire avec moins de 10m de marnage. Néanmoins j’ai pu prendre quelques belles photos de notre petite Baie de la Landriais, sa calle, ses mouillages et son chantier. Voici donc des images de notre paradis. Je vous souhaite tous un très bon début de saison.

Race Training

Race Training

lundi, 21 mars 2011

A core element of the Clipper Race experience is the pioneering training programme which transforms novices and relatively inexperienced sailors into highly skilled racing yacht crew. CLIPPER TRAINING has trained more than 2,000 people who intend to race across the oceans and around the world with the Clipper Race. The experience and expertise that has been gained during this process is second to none and has enabled Clipper Training to develop a world class training programme.

The Race

The Race

lundi, 21 mars 2011

40,000 miles of ocean racing and around 450 people facing the challenge of a lifetime. When the starting gun goes off for the Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race in August 2011 the fleet of ten sleek, stripped down 68-foot yachts will embark on a full circumnavigation of the globe. It’s not easy and only those with a firm desire to live life to the full apply. They come from all walks of life, all backgrounds and from all corners of the globe. It’s the only race in the world where the organisers supply the fleet of ten identical, 68-foot, stripped down racing yachts – each sponsored by a city, a region or a country – and man them with ten fully trained skippers, employed to lead the crews safely around the planet. It’s the only race in the world where taxi drivers rub shoulders with chief executives, vicars mix with housewives, students work alongside bankers, nurses work with vets and doctors team up with rugby players. It’s an experience that will change people’s lives and while the crew members may be amateur, no one has told the ocean that. The sea does not distinguish between Olympians or novices and if the Southern Ocean, the Pacific or the South Atlantic decides to throw down its gauntlet, the Clipper crews need to be ready to face exactly the same challenges as those experienced by the professional racer.
