Secret Anchorages of Brittany
By: Peter Cumberlidge
3rd Edition 2016
Concise pilotage directions for practically all the natural anchorages along the Brittany coast, from the Bay of Mont St Michel round to the great estuary of the Loire. The anchorages start near Cap de la Hague on the Cotentin Peninsula and include Iles Chausey, both of course part of Normandy. The book enters Brittany waters near Cancale and follows the whole 300-mile coastline, with its rivers, estuaries and offshore islands. The pilotage sections are peppered with short features on the maritime traditions, life and history of this inimitable coast.
