Rough Seas off Brittany Coast

Spent a couple of weeks in Southern Brittany last month. Weather was pretty good overall, but the wind picked up some days creating some fairly rough seas. Managed to find a sheltered spot at the point near Kerfany les Pins and found some entertainment watching small boats struggling against waves and winds to get out to sea.

That is a rough sea, I bet they had some fun in that boat. Lovely captures and great timing.

yeee-haw! Great shots, and hopefully they came back in successfully too. Without giving a Darwin Award to the passenger without any flotation gear (I'll refrain from adding what I *really* think about that idea - wouldn't want to get banned for it...).

Rough seas but nice images Paul, thanks for posting them. I'll agree with Jim, no flotation device, that man has a death wish or is a total idiot.

Thanks Snappychappy. Thanks Jim and Heinrich. I agree about the flotation gear. I wouldn't want to be out at sea in a small boat without some flotation aid, but in those seas that day it was asking for trouble. I think some of the other passengers were not wearing flotation devices either.
