    Good anchorage, sheltered from westerly winds. The mooring is done on sand, in about ten meters. Be careful, in a very strong mistral, beyond 30 knots, there is an effect of strong aerological turbulence (rollers) due to the cliff overlooking this anchorage. This creates an apparent wind 180 degrees to the true wind, causing the boat to be pulled to shore as the upper wind pushes offshore. To be wary, therefore, is real life. But in conditions of a westerly breeze, what tranquility. Just a little bit of a wheeler, that's right.

    Bon mouillage, abrité des vents d'ouest. Le mouillage se fait sur du sable, dans une petite dizaine de mètres. Attention, par très fort mistral, au delà de 30 noeuds, il y a un effet de forte turbulence aérologique (rouleaux) du à la falaise surplombant ce mouillage. Cela crée un vent apparent à 180 degrés du vent réel, le bateau étant alors tiré vers la côte alors que le vent en altitude pousse au large. Se mefier donc, c'est du vécu. Mais dans des conditions de brise d'ouest, quelle tranquillité. Juste un peu rouleur, c'est vrai.

    Very nice anchorage during the day, because despite 20 knots west the swell is returning a little and to sleep well ....

    Très joli mouillage de jour, car malgré 20 noeuds d’ouest la houle rentre un peu et pour bien dormir....
