L’Aber-Idut in Brittany
Entrance 3nm S of Le Four light House
When making a passage to southern Brittany this is an excellent night stop at the top end of the Chenal Du Four. 110nm from Fowey so at 6kn gives 18hrs passage time. Leave at 02.00 and arrive 20.00 with lots of daylight. I recommend at least for the first time to arrive in daylight as entrance is quite narrow. Excellent shelter and now has a small marina.
Gives a good starting point to catch the tide early next morning in both the Chenal Du Four and the Raz de Seine. Then onto clear Penmarche Point by the middle of the afternoon with all of the best parts of southern Brittany beckoning.
