Maître de Port – Éliane Le Faou
Wintering in St Martin.
The Maître de Port is keen to let British Yachtsman know that many English and non-French boats find St Martin a safe and convenient place to winter a boat. La Rochelle airport is near by with regular flights from the UK. All boats are checked daily by Port staff and the local Cruising Association Representative Nigel St George is there a good part of the year. In addition a good selection of restaurants line the port as well as hotels if not staying on your boat. There is a crane and lifting machine which can handle boats up to 55′ in length for winter antifouling or repairs.
