Unforgettable moments

The grand parade from Brest to Douarnenez 

The grand parade is an event you never get tired of, whether you are on board a ship or watching from one of the viewpoints. The sight of hundreds of sailboats of all sizes leaving the roadstead together is simply breathtaking.

As helicopters fly over the parade, broadcasting the event worldwide, the huge fleet sails by the Pointe du Toulinguet promontory, by the Pointe de Pen-Hir promontory, around the Cap de la Chèvre and finally enters the bay of Douarnenez.

The grand parade marks the end of Brest’s international maritime festival and kicks off Douarnenez’s Temps Fête maritime festival.
