Atlantic coast sailing trip

I have just returned from another great week sailing, for the first time on the Atlantic coast of France, for a captain's certification with MCV sailing school. I learnt all about tide and sea current drift calculations, and we cruised almost 40nm daily with different spinnakers and sails on a 45" performance Dufour yacht. That coastline has tides well over 6m, and ports that dry up at low tide, leaving boats stranded, quite impressive for a newcomer. We spent days going over solo maneuvers and man-over-board and other risks and solutions. There's now nothing to prevent me from taking a boat with the family or solo anywhere, which opens up some interesting possibilities for the next trips.
