Approach - There are 3 entrance channels for L'Aberwrac'h: Chenel de la Malouine, Chanel de la Pendante and the Grand Chenal. The latter can be entered day and night in most weather conditions, the other two should only be used during the day, in calm conditions and above half tide.
Francois Kerjean, who sails in this area on a regular basis adds; Aberwrac'h is the best refuge on the northern coast. But the approaches are very difficult, with many rocks in the north, the only sure approach is the buoy "libenter", free of any danger and after that the "chenal" is very well buoyed or balised. At mid 2007 the new harbour will be operational on pontoons. The Harbour Master is also the rescue boat captain, Mr Jean Troadec.
