The Trinité-sur-Mer marina enjoys a privileged setting on the estuary of the river Crac’h, ideal for water sports in all weather conditions.
Many a big name in sailing has moored at its pontoons, to practice and to install their training base there.
A true symbol of the rise in popularity of sailing in the seventies, the marina has continued to develop and has, over the years, become a reference in sailing and regattas.
This port welcomes big ocean racers, mono- and multihulls. These examples of technical innovation are a tourist attraction in itself. Take for example the latest arrival, the multihull Spindrift that arrived in 2014. With its overall length of 40 metres it’s the largest race trimaran in the world.
La Trinité-sur-Mer needs to assure its ranking in sports performance and remain a centre of excellence for racing ships. Planned investments will enable to sustain this image. It’s appeal to high level professional sailors and the outstanding natural beauty of the place have to be maintained.
The Compagnie has always worked closely together with the town and the SNT on the visitor entertainment, especially related to the organisation of high quality nautical events.
Furthermore, with its many buildings located in public space, urban planning and architecture are essential topics of consideration for the vitality of the marina.
In partnership with the town, an overall project of requalification is taking place.

THE PASSEPORT ESCALES NETWORK
The concept of the Passeport Escales (stopover passport) was invented thirty years ago. Faced with a lack of visitor places in high season, the Morbihan and the Compagnie des Ports du Morbihan came up with Passeport Escales, a unique concept to encourage the mobility of boats, to promote the sharing of the available space and to stimulate the local economy.
The principle is simple. Sailors inform their home port about their cruising plans and in return they enjoy free overnight stays in other partner marinas. This way, the marina management can be more efficient, with many berths thus liberated to receive visiting boats.
Launched by the Compagnie du Morbihan, nowadays the network includes ports from the East Coast of the United Kingdom all the way to Spain and Italy, with of course a choice of various marinas along the French coast. In 2014, Passeport Escales counted 91 marinas.
