West Riviera Yachting dry-sails from Brittany to the Boat Show

30.08.2012
Representatives of the West Riviera Yachting dry port, next to Tréguier, in northern Brittany (Western France), will attend the Boat Show, in Southampton (UK), from 14 to 23 September 2012. West Riviera Yachting, which is a member of The Yacht Harbour Association, is ideally placed and fully equipped to welcome British yachtsmen and yachtswomen.

In the north of Brittany, the attractive seaside destination of Tréguier has everything that the yachting community may wish for: breathtaking scenery, access to beautiful nautical destinations, and a modern, secure and easily accessible dry port — West Riviera Yachting, now served by a completely new, bilingual website.

“What we have is a modern structure using up-to-date technical and logistical methods, which take good care of your boat and the environment, which means less maintenance, lower costs, and more security for the user,” explains Yann Huchet du Guermeur, Business Development Manager of West Riviera Yachting.

West Riviera Yachting offers a full range of services to boat owners who want to experience for themselves the beauty of Brittany: the dry-port facility is situated next to the deep-water port of Tréguier. Visitors will be given a full tour of the facilities when coming to the Tréguier marina. For those attending the Boat Show, in Southampton (England), between 14 and 23 September of this year, West Riviera Yachting will be on Stand No.F004.

West Riviera Yachting can meet all the expectations of sailing and motor-cruising enthusiasts, and is positioned close to Southern England and the Channel Islands, along the attractive northern Breton coastline. Tréguier and its marina represent an alternative to the congested ports on the British side of the Channel.

West Riviera Yachting features 8,200 m² of secure land (storage zones, eco-careenage area and technical area); 2,400 m² of covered storage facilities; up to 300 boats parked, all sizes included; handling without dismasting; an innovative lifting system without straps (hence, there are no constraints on the hull of the boat); secure and efficient wedging; and, last but not least, a clubhouse due to open very soon.

With its professional team of marine enthusiasts, West Riviera Yachting offers smooth and safe sailing-and-storage facilities. More particularly, the gentle, hazard-free handling is carried out thanks to Nautipartk® — the company’s patented system of hydraulic trailers that makes it possible to transport each boat (without dismasting) directly from the slipway on to the storage area, which is clean, closed off and sheltered from prevailing winds.

West Riviera Yachting offers maintenance services that are both flexible and environmentally friendly. Hull-and-deck cleaning maintenance is performed in a dedicated facility. The rinsing water is recycled, while the residue of the cleaning process is treated on site; the dangerous waste, for its part, is sent to a certified treatment centre.

“We are proud that our environmental authority has granted West Riviera Yachting the ecological, anti-pollution Vague Bleue [literally, Blue Wave] label,” explains Yann Huchet du Guermeur.

West Riviera Yachting has chosen not to rely on in-house repair services, so that clients can choose any service provider they want for repairs and maintenance: West Riviera Yachting has a list of trusted partners to choose from. Any repair job is done under the client’s supervision.

“And if you are more do-it-yourself minded, you will have access to a technical area with [the provision of] air, water and electricity,” adds Yann Huchet du Guermeur.

West Riviera Yachting offers tailor-made services: the company is committed to making its clients’ boating experience as enjoyable as possible. “The West Riviera Yachting team sets everything up so that yachters are able to concentrate on the pleasures of sailing, with no constraints,” explains Yann Huchet du Guermeur.

West Riviera Yachting can provide various dedicated services, such as organising the transfer of the boat owner from the nearest airport (or railway station) to the marina, or sorting out the victualling of the ship. When the owner of the boat arrives in Tréguier, everything can be set up so that he (or she) finds the ship moored to one of the pontoons of the marina (reserved for users of the dry port), ready to put to sea.

In the very near future, UniverSail, a specialist web portal, will carry a full catalogue of West Riviera Yachting services; it will enable boat owners to manage their ship’s maintenance and handling operations remotely.

West Riviera Yachting’s dry-sailing solutions and wintering services are all priced very competitively, as sample prices quoted here (below) illustrate. The package of services offered by West Riviera Yachting simplifies matters for the boat owner and can encompass car-hire services, hotel bookings, etc.

- Dry-port services: West Riviera Yachting offers the full gamut of services that a marina does, with a reserved site with access to water and electricity, together with four, five or 10 launchings per year, and the rinsing of the hull at each landing. It is possible to reserve a pontoon for one (or several) night(s), for yachters who want to sail for several days around Tréguier. For an 8.50-metre boat with four launchings (out and back), the price is of €1,780 per year.

- Overwintering services: A reserved site in the park is provided for the duration of the client’s choice; handling and rinsing of the hull are included. For an 8.50-metre boat, with handling (out and back), for six months in the marina, the price is €820.

- Careenage: In an area that is clean and in compliance with the highest environmental standards (i.e. Vague Bleue Carénage-approved), for an 8.50-metre boat, the price is €75 (excluding handling). For this service, clients need to give 24 hours’ notice.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
