This summer, my two daughters aged 6 & 7, got to go to Sailing School – and they loved it! At the bottom of the street where Maison Mielles is situated there is l’Espace Voile de Bréhal, where in the school holidays they run one or two week courses. For the younger children they start in Optimists, which are the teeny tiny boats and then they move up to Catamarans. Despite a few days of strong winds they both had a wonderful time and are greatly looking forward to going again next year.
The instructors are mostly young lads and ladies who have all clearly been sailing from the time they could walk. They are tanned and toned with bright smiles, and are amazingly competent young people.
You can hire wetsuits too, although fortunately we had one in Nina’s size at home because they were all a bit to big for her.
