Tuesday 28th Gildas Flahault paints a Golfe de Morbihan landscape live during the crew party at the lle d’Arz. He worked for at least three hours non-stop, all from memory, despite a very similar scene being visible if he stepped back three or four metres from his “canvas”

Thursday 30th ended,  bathed in marvellous evening light at Locmariaquer, sharing a picnic with friends of the 2nd fleet – sail and oars – on the pontoon next to their Ness Yawl

Saturday 1st June. The Grand Parade. What can one say? All the superlatives apply, simply splendid, well organised, almost as many boats on the water as people on the shore-sides, with weather to dream of. I chose the bowsprit of Oosterschelde as my viewpoint
