About this site

Piers and Lin du Pré bought their new Fleming 55 / 129, Play d'eau, in 2003.

She was berthed in Beaucette Marina, Guernsey in the Channel Islands at N49° 30’.197 W002° 30’.350 until she was sold in October 2021.

This site charts the thrilling adventures they had in her.

Hi Everyone.

We are about to head for the Brest peninsula to take advantage of the neap tides. This will involve us travelling from La Roche Bernard via Port Louis (Lorient), Port La Foret, Camaret and L’Aber Wrac’h, in the next few days.

Of course, if the weather and sea state prevent this happening, we’ll have plenty of time to update the site.

Hence, if there are no posts please forgive us. There’re many sea miles to cover with little time off, leaving even less time for the fun of updating the website.

However, as soon as we can, we will resume normal service.

    Good to see you are at Port Louis. We are having an alcohol free day!!!

    • Hi Chris and Sue. We so enjoyed our time with you. Thank you so, so much for the glorious three evenings we spent with you. Cherished. The journey to Port Louis was ‘interesting’ – more of which when we have time to post an update. Right now we are checking the weather to see if we can go to Sainte Marine (next to Benodet. Port La Foret have no room for us since they are full of Vendee boats) today or have to wait until tomorrow. Once bitten (yesterday), twice shy….

      Really look forward to seeing you both again. Piers and Lin.
