Brittany Swift Trawler Rendez Vous
A popular yearly event for Swift Trawler owners!
EXPLORING A NEW LOCATION!
First held in the Mediterranean Sea, the second of the yearly Swift Trawler rendez-vous, exclusively for Swift Trawler owners, took place in Brittany. With seventeen boats expected and smooth organization by the Beneteau teams and the dealer Armorique Diffusion, the meeting had all the ingredients of a friendly weekend of shared experiences. In this way, the event reflects the mentality of a community of long-distance cruisers.
WHO SAID IT ALWAYS RAINS IN BRITTANY?
The boats met up at La-Trinités-sur-Mer’s marina on a gloriously sunny day, before setting off on this marvellous three-day trip. The marina is still considered a pinnacle of sailing, thanks to the famous skippers who began their careers here.
RELAXATION & LEISURE ACTIVITIES
The following day, the Swift Trawlers left for Hoëdic, a delightful island in Quiberon Bay. This dream location provided an opportunity to drop anchor and take part in a cocktail competition, in which the crews proved really imaginative! The fleet then headed to Belle-Ile-en-Mer to end this wonderful day with a Mölkky (Finnish throwing game) championship!
They left at daybreak on the day of France’s national holiday and a magnificent sunrise greeted them as if to reward the early risers. The fleet then worked its way up the Gulf of Morbihan, where it enjoyed a wonderful mooring, made all the more enjoyable by platters of fresh langoustines. This went down really well with our community of food lovers! The weekend ended with the traditional gala dinner. The sea view was stunning and the mood was relaxed and jazzy.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of this year’s event. See you next year, with a new location to explore!
