    We did 1: tank sailing with our children 9 and 5 years in tanks two-seater. A great family moment. The handling of the tank is simple and you get quickly to good sensations of speed! Fly with the view on the Mont St Michel, it's great!

    the experience could have been better if the number of participants was less, the organizers agreed at the last moment a group of 7 people who had not reserved. There was a lot of wind so extra to roll except that given the number of tanks and the experiences of each few monitors could handle not everything, they asked us to slow down as we began to understand they should have done two courses to meet the skills of each best, rules of conduct have not been met and on several occasions the accident was avoided , I personally find roll young teenagers with this wind it was too risky. The site is nice and the tanks in good condition, try not to confuse security and performance.

    The best part of visiting Mont Saint Michel was stopping here for an hour of "char à voile". My first time to do this. Clear explanations, and direct to practice. Skip Mont Saint Michel and come straight here.

    Unique experience! Culmination of a dream that I had since I was a child, when favoleggiavo on the cover of my arithmetic book depicting these "tricycles", at sunset, on an endless beach like this. Since then I have loved sailing, though I've never practiced. Along with my family the seafront road back from Mont St. Michel to St. Malo, I come across this site along a coast as beautiful as lost, seemingly almost out of this world. Watching these "landcraft", as they call them here, as well as a big surprise (I didn't expect) is a sinking heart of the child who is still in me. The desire to experience the thrill of these Beach sailing far surpassed the brake imposed by reason. I've always felt far from trivial maneuver a sail. Wind direction, points of sailing downwind, upwind, crosswise ... all stuff that cannot be improvised. There, then, the speed of the media was likely to leave you apparently very little time to think about how to drive. Drive those means seemed to be exclusive to young folks, wake up, with a certain instinct for speed and with much practice behind. My heart was already past the obstacle: the little reason I only served to bring residual charterers and ask semplicentemente if the "play" could be within reach of a fifty year old like me ... I wondered if their reassurances were really objective or if they were dictated by the desire to collect 20 + 20 € (Yes, because, by father ghastly which are sometimes, I took the 17-year-old son) for an hour. I jumped it. The wind was blowing strong, tense and constant in the direction parallel to the Street Promenade and pushing "bad" the wagons by those who went up and down the slope just mentioned with some low Beach Road, provided by skittle tide (Yes, because after a few hours the sea, now at about two kilometers from the coastal road, would reinghiottito in a cyclical pattern continuous, twice a day, true spectacle of nature). The few instructions received, however partly misunderstood by me for my faults with English, at the beginning I have made him suffer a bit. Just took off, with wind, I immediately took a high speed that I was afraid ("when I bend over me ...") but I knew how I had to maneuver the sail (when you say "make necessary virtues" ... in any case fundamental maneuvers are only 2-3, it really is very simple) even to slow down a little and fear is now gone, with the first turn at 180°. From then on it was a real pleasure, with increasing speed, maneuver the sail away-with hands and driving the chariot down (the front wheel is steered of course ...). Immense sense of freedom, in absolute silence, in which only the wind will lash the face and ears. For me, this experience alone is worth the trip carried out by coming up here, from Tuscany.

    Just awesome! The explanations at the beginning are clear and precise to enjoy Yachting! 1: initiation and I didn't know the time spent.
