Noonsite says – The lock gate into Vannes opens for 2 1/2 hrs each side of local HW between 0800-2200 in the summer. The road bridge opens on the hour and half-hour when the lock is open. There is usually a harbour launch to direct you to a berth.

After a pleasant sail on the Gulf of Morbihan, you will reach Vanne’s port. Access to the port is made by passing under the Kerino bridge. Open hours are available in the port guide that you can find on the town’s web site www.mairie-vannes.fr/ . You will find many services all year round, from lavatories to wifi connections.
