EVENTS TO 30 SEPTEMBER...



Tuesday 17 September
A follow up of the Guided Tour of Gouarec

In February Local historian Pierre le Dour gave AIKB members a guided tour of Gouarec. It was very popular and he had so much to tell that it needs completing with all the things he didn’t have time for. Gouarec has been on the map since the 10th century. The town later became a de Rohan stronghold. Though a market town, it was attached to Plouguernevel until the parish church was built in the early nineteenth century. Complete your discovery including the quartier Saint Gilles, admire its typical 17th century façades in schist and learn about some of its famous inhabitants.

Meet at the Train Station opposite the Garage Martin at 2.30pm. Members 2€, Guests 5€.



Thursday 26 September – An afternoon on a Great Sailing Ship in the Bay of Saint Malo

The Renard is a pirate ship 30 meters in length. This legendry sailing ship is a replica of the last pirate ship owned by the famous privateer from Saint Malo, Robert Surcouf (1773-1827). This vessel is an emblem of the history of Saint Malo and the life of the buccaneers.
We will spend four hours under sail exploring the Bay of Saint Malo.

Embarcation: Cale de la Bourse, Saint Malo 35400 at 1.45pm at the latest where a small zodiac will take us to the Renard for boarding. Please wear warm and waterproof clothing and flat sport footwear. Because there is great demand, we need to confirm our reservation by the end of June and request that you please contact us as soon as possible as there is a limited number of places. Tickets must paid on reservation. 50€ per person.
