The deck seating arrangements lend a new meaning to 'armchair sailor'.
The fog stayed with us for two days which meant straining eyes and ears as we sailed from Cameret to Ile d’Yeu via Belle Ile.
Belle Ile it may well have been if we could have seen it.
The area is not much used by shipping and the ferries ply between the islands and the mainland so we were not in an area of high traffic but there was always the risk of encountering a fishing boat or another yacht. In two days we saw one other sailing yacht and thought we heard the engines of another two boats.
We were so pleased when the fog decided to go.
