LA RANCE : A SURPRISING NAVIGATION
People from St Malo are always very pleased to pass over the tide-gate of the "barrage de la Rance" to sail on this beautifull river. Its verdant banks and its sympathic anchorages with picturesque villages like St Suliac will surprise you. You'll also appreciate the technical aspect of this navigation, with some gusts near the small caps, some zones without wind, and with some small or strong currents on certain areas...
The only inconvenience of this river comes from its barrage which has a too small tide-gate to welcome many boats together. The transits are planned at round hours, and there is a special time slot during summer to allow a fluid circulation of cars on the barrage.
Do not hesitate to include the river Rance inside your program of navigation, you'll not regret this destination. It is also a safety area to sail in case of bad weather.
