At Paimpol in North Brittany, courses take place on 3 different sites depending on level. Departures from Paimpol include coastal cruises or long haul trips towards the UK and Ireland. Beginner and instructor training takes place at Coz Castel on the edges of the Trieux River, and junior lessons take place on the 'Ile Verte' (Green Isle) in the Bréhat archipelago. The waters where navigation takes place offer a stunning variety: a wide tidal range and a sea studded with rocks and crossed by strong currents. By continually skirting round the headland, the cliffs, and the isles eventually you become master of the art of rock-grazing! All of these features make Paimpol one of the prime training areas for learning sailing techniques. The Paimpol base is dedicated to cruising and to courses from introductory level to improver courses for adults and juniors in nearby and distant waters: the Scilly Isles, Ireland, England, Scotland and Iceland.
