The Yacht Club of Carnac!

There is so much to see and do in my beautiful Morbihan of my lovely Bretagne and in my belle France. I have come to Carnac several times as it lies just south of me just 27 km or about 17 miles. Passing we saw a nice building at first on the beach, and realise it was the Yacht Club of Carnac! We took a further look and always a visit once on the beach of Carnac. I  had mentioned briefly in my blog, but feel deserves a post of its own. Therefore, here is my take on the Yacht Club of Carnac!!


The Yacht Club welcomes you all year round to experience all kinds of sea sports intensely.  And a must stop on Carnac plage or beach area and we love to walked by it and great picture taking is the Yacht Club de Carnac. A wonderful set up in a great beach spot on the bd de l’océan of Carnac. A bit of history tells us that already in the summer of 1960, on the main beach, a few families, more grouped together in the center of the beach , had beyond a dinghy Rascal especially, little guy, boy. The boats were pulled over the sand, past the tents or access passages. In the spring of 1961 it was rumored that a group of users “in all kinds of gear” was going to be formed on the eastern part of the Grande Plage or large beach under the name “Club n ° 1” at the initiative of Mr. Chupot. The rest is history as the saying goes. The Carnac Yacht Club invites you to come and sail on the magnificent lake of the Baie de Quiberon. Protected from the winds and the ocean swell, a wide choice of activities awaits you such as sailing course, rental, private lessons, discovery outing, activity for children, coastal license training, kayaking, paddle and rowing, year-round activity.

The sailing school opened on June 20, 1966 and the inauguration took place on July 23. The main building of the club house measures 20 m x 14 m on two levels: on the ground floor, workshops, equipment depots, easement rooms; upstairs, surrounded by windows overlooking the sea to the south and the beach to the east, reception hall, bar, toilets, club secretariat and secretary’s apartment. A wing on one level extends the building to the north. It houses cabins with three berths each, accommodating 32 students and 10 monitors.
