1,200 boats invaded the Golfe du Morbihan and will be here for a week.  We went into Vannes with Dave and Annie as the harbour has been emptied of modern boats to make way for the visitors from around the world.

It was raining when we left home, but was nice when we arrived in Vannes, half an hour later.

The noise attracted us to this spot. The bagpipes were in rehearsal for the parade. There will be lots happening throughout the day, but we want to get a vantage point to see the sailboat racing.

No, this is a makeshift pool for the model sailboats.

Didn't have time to board her.

Unfortunately the road was jammed for the coast, so we didn't get to see the racing.  We went for a picnic at Tredion Chateau then for a game of 10's at Dave and Annies.
