St Valery sur Somme is at the entrance to the Somme. I sailed there with some friends. It is quite complex to sail as the sand always moves so it’s not really charted and this made for a fascinating sail for about 10 miles…it can take about 2 hours to traverse. St Valery was very popular a the turn of the century with the French. The estuary has a lot of samphire. You can only get out of St Valery at high tide so you can get locked in.
I just liked the view….good food, good wine and I was lucky with the weather.
