July, 2016 - ILE D'YEU, FRANCE

A new month and our last stop in France.

Another good day sail.  We arrive late in the evening and were not able to raise the Port-Joinville captain on the VHF to confirm the entrance depth.  We opted to anchor outside the port and spent an uncomfortable night as the current kept us broadside to the swell for much of the time.

The next morning we are quick to enter the port and attach to the dock.

Port-Joinville has a deep water harbor, that supports the larger fishing boats, as well as a decent sized yacht marina.  We walked the town and found a surprising reminder of our home town.

The town fronts the older commercial harbor.
