Base de Voile Eric Tabarly

Why we love

Come and enjoy all the activities, with family, friends or individually: sailing (boats, board), paddle, conoe-kayak, come and go mountain biking while taking advantage of the accessible lake circuits and bike park to all.

All the activities offered by the sailing base are accessible every day, weekends and public holidays included, from 14 p.m. to 17 p.m. (times in spring).

Several methods of practice are available to you:
- The sports school to introduce you to or improve your skills in sailing. A practice slot is offered to you every Wednesday from 14 p.m. to 17 p.m. from April to June then from September to November. An introduction to and support for regattas is also on the program for those who have a competitive practice project.
- For regular leisure practice for those in the know, you can opt for a dormouse sailing package which allows you to have free access to the equipment (boats and windsurf boards, canoes-kayaks, paddle, mountain bikes) during opening hours the sailing base throughout the season, for independent practice, with friends or family.
