The "Semaine du Golfe" (Gulf's Week) in Morbihan, the 8th "rendez-vous" for the sailing maritime heritage.

Once again, the Gulf gathering boats of every size and every tradition: sail&oar craft, small "camp cruising" boats, classic yachts, fishing boats, classic motorboats… Most of them are coming from the French Atlantic coasts, but also, from The British Islands, the North Sea, Scandinavia, the Mediterranean…

The Gulf of Morbihan is a true inland ‘little sea’ composed of 12 000 hectares of Atlantic sea sheltered from swell. A magical place where sea, land & sky melt in changing & picturesque landscapes. The Morbihan Gulf is part of the World Most Beautiful Bays Club.

In breton language, « Mor-Bihan » means ‘little sea’. Thousands of years ago, when rivers had already dug their beds, they were deluged by Atlantic waters. This is why the Ocean goes so far inland towards Vannes & Auray through typically Breton rias, surrounding former hills which have turned into an archipelago of uncountable islands, the biggest being the Ile d'Arz & the Ile aux Moines."
