Story 8: Going out to sea
Sandrine Boyer-Engel

InDeauville has sea legs. The taste for cross-Channel regattas came to him very quickly.
City stage with happiness of the Tour de France with the veil in 2013, anchoring city of Cowes-Deauville
which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2021, it has twice hosted the sailors of the Solitaire du Figaro.
Between major events, the Deauville Yacht Club and its sailing school
are maneuvering to organize regattas, outings and learning to sail on habitables.


Gateway to the bay of the Seine opening onto the Channel, its lake is reputed to be technical.
With their 1 cumulative rings, the two ports of the territory - Port Deauville and the Port Municipal -
offer a large reception capacity and an exceptional environment in the city center.
We also practice dinghy sailing in Villers-sur-Mer and Blonville-sur-Mer
where the Pôle Nautique Villers-Blonville offers courses on catamarans all year round.

On a pretty sailboat,
accompanied by a skipper



A strong association of more than 250 members, the Deauville Yacht Club takes you aboard a J80 liveable for a sea trip, easy to maneuver and perfect for discovering sailing. If you have level 3 FFV, you can rent a sailboat in total autonomy.

On an old rig,
like an old sea bass



Aboard the François Monique, a former shell sloop from Brest harbor built in 1935, the crew of six enthusiasts will tell you the story of this exceptional boat, the anecdotes of its restoration while discovering the coast from the sea.

On a catamaran,
to learn



During a sea trip along the Falaises des Vaches Noires, the crew of the Pôle Nautique Villers-Blonville takes the apprentice sailors on board to introduce them to navigation maneuvers, such as tacking. If you have FFV level 3, you can rent a catamaran in total autonomy.

On a bin,
just a few minutes



Going from Deauville to Trouville-sur-Mer by boat and vice versa is child's play. Embark on the Trait d'Union, a small boat that connects the two stations when the tide is high. Anecdote: it is the smallest crossing in France with 220 meters in three minutes!

On a kayak or a motor boat,
for sea fishing



Head out to sea, take out the bait and see what the sea has to offer. The waters of the English Channel are full of excellent mackerel, clams, shrimps, cockles, sole and other crustaceans.
