We’re nearing the end now of our La Rochelle Challenge and because we’re a few days ahead of schedule we’ve taken the luxury of making a detour to have a wonderfully relaxing day off in La Trinite Sur Mer. There’s a great place nearby where my partner loves to take our dog for a walk along a wild, unspoiled beach, and the dog loves it too. It’s also a good place for a spot of retail therapy, which makes a nice change from sailing.
But for me the highlight is gazing at the incredible variety of yachts and boats here, ranging from small sailing dinghies to luxury cruising yachts and state-of-the-art hi tech racing catamarans with huge masts as high as sequoia trees. Indeed, this must be one of the only harbours in France where sailing vessels outnumber motor boats.
I had wonderful surprise just a few minutes ago when I looked at our Just Giving page and discovered we are now about 55% of the way towards achieving our goal of raising £500 for Save the Children, thanks to yet more incredibly generous donations, for which we are so grateful.
More to the point, I am sure the children who’s suffering can be alleviated by the actions of this international charity organisation are equally grateful for the support they receive.
