Sailing in the south of Brittany

In the south of Brittany, the coast of the department Morbihan boasts a large choice of navigation areas. This region has a reputation for its excellent sailing conditions and the diversity in its landscapes.  


Most harbours developed naturally, blessed by excellent geographical circumstances. When cruising the region, you can find a wide range of possible stop-overs; each with their own unique characteristics.


The Morbihan owes its fame in part to its dynamic coast. Because of the economic importance of water sports and nautical industry for the whole of France, the south coast of Brittany has been baptized “Sailing Valley”. 


Its many marinas play an important role in this dynamic. They represent the attraction and the development in this coastal region and they contribute immensely to the local economy and cultural life (manifestations, sports events). 

The presence of a marina can be an asset for the town, but the way it is managed determines its success: a port well maintained, high quality leisure activities, good care of the environment...

As many Morbihan ports are located in the centre of towns, the investments made (pontoons, workshops, offices) contribute to the entire town economy, it helps sustain traditional activities and it sustains the history and culture in landscape and buildings.   

The Compagnie supports joint projects related to the crafts of the sea. It puts in contact different players: tourists, fishermen, professional sailors and yachtsmen. It develops all sorts of cooperation: between professionals, associations and government institutions.
