qualified instructor from a motor boat, so you know you're
safe. After just a few sessions of a week's introductory
course of 5 x half-days, you're enjoying a sail round the
The wide flat sandy beach of
the Bay of Saint-Jean, sheltered by Boulogne harbour to the
south, and Cap Gris-Nez to the north.
