These are the voyages of the sailing vessel Pétillant. Her original eight-month mission: to sail from Baltimore to France via Florida and the Bahamas, to successfully navigate the shoals of the French douane, to boldly go where few Maine Coon cats have gone before was completed in 2008. Now she is berthed in Port Medoc and sails costal Spain, France, and the UK during the summer months.

Port Medoc en Fete

We arrived at Port Medoc just before May Day which is a national holiday here in France. Our marina was preparing to host a "Quai des Vins" festival. Three days of music, food and wine, sail boat races, fishing tournaments, and rides and games for children. The weather was splendid.
This is our first posting here after a long hiatus. Petillant is getting ready to cruise south to Spain. To see how we got to Port Medoc last week and why we are still sitting here as well as reading about our land-based life in France go to Ste-Foy-Bordeaux.blogspot.com.
