La Semaine du Golfe 2017
"La Semaine du Golfe" by James M Pilgrim
The Gulf of Morbihan welcomes upwards of 1000 classic and traditional vessels for La Semaine du Golfe 2017. This quite unique maritime festival sees the fleet split into flotillas by class, with around 18 harbours welcoming a new flotilla on each day on the event.
For those looking to experience this event from the water there will be endless opportunity for day sails aboard a range of vessels and for those looking to entertain guests there will be opportunity for hospitality aboard many of the vessels too. If given the chance we highly recommend participating in the parade of sail, a quite unique opportunity to see the entire fleet together as they enter the Gulf of Morbihan.
The Tall Ships Events team attended the previous edition of this event and we’re here to tell you we’d be back in a heartbeat if given the chance!
Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
