Dodging the flat and the rain for one day, I managed to sail on one of the most amazing places of the Atlantic Coast of France, the Bassin d'Arcachon.
Leaving from Cap Ferret, we sailed this old wooden lady around, using the high tide to access the Cabanes Tchanquées, a couple of houses in the middle of the water, 3km from any shore.
Wave wise, it's been flat. Everyone is desperate around here. Nothing has been on radar for weeks. Nothing. What's been on the radar though: rain and clouds. So today, the swell is back...with 20 knots of onshore winds, and rain. The locals' mood is pretty low, and so is the tourists' in need of sun.
Have you watched the final day of the Billabong Pro in Tahiti ? How amazing was that day ?!
Leaving the shore tomorrow. Next time I'll see the Ocean, it'll be in Bondi.
Have a great day.
