Day 0: Arrival Day

Day 1: The Area where we row –  Arcachon Bay (in French: the Bassin d’Arcachon, and known locally simply as “le Bassin”) is a bay of the Atlantic Ocean on the southwest coast of France. The bay covers an area of 150 km² at high tide and 40 km² at low tide. Some of its geological features are natural preservation areas. Day one will be the day where we start off easy. The crews will row 3-4 hrs to an Oyster Farm or an oyster breeder, leave the boat there and enjoy the local seafood.

Day 2: The general shape of the Bassin d’Arcachon is that of an equilateral triangle pointing north, the southwest corner of which is open to the sea, between Cap Ferret and the town of Arcachon (more specifically, its suburb Pyla-sur-Mer), through a 3 km narrow channel (Les Passes). Just south of the entrance is the Great Dune of Pyla, the place where we are heading too.  The Pyla Dune is crowned by Europe’s largest sand dune. Nearly 3 kilometres long, 500 metres wide: Here you will feel your boat being in the Atlantic Ocean. Spectacular.

Day 3: On day 3 we will be circling around the “birds Island”. Nearly in the middle of the bay is a very particular island: L’île aux Oiseaux (Isle of the Birds). Every year there are rowing races around this island and if we get lucky we can participate in the race or do the trip on our own.
