August 2018 – Very helpful marina staff. Do call them on VHF 9 when arriving at Saint Quay, Trevor and his team are very good at responding and speak good English.

Saint Quay Portrieux – Port D’armor is an excellent base for your boating. It is a large (1040 boats) non-tidal marina with excellent facilities and very helpful, English speaking marina staff.

We were met as we approached Pontoon 7, the visitors’ pontoon, by the Marina’s orange rib and they took us to our mooring. You could not have better service.

Groceries – the closest shop is the Spar shop around the Old Harbour.
