With the FR8 you can travel from the sailing stronghold of La Rochelle over the Gironde to Bordeaux or to the Spanish border. In the north of Bordeaux the Garonne and Dordogne flow into the Gironde. The trip goes past the best wineries in the world, so that stops are actually worthwhile. You can expect flat to slightly hilly wine-growing areas, surrounded by magnificent chateaus. Bordeaux itself shines as a historic, prosperous city where it’s nice to spend a few days. From Bordeaux via the Garonne and Gironde back to the Atlantic, it's not far to Cap Ferret across from the Dune du Pilat, the largest sand dune in Europe. From there you can go directly to one of the many marinas in the Bassin d'Arcachon to enjoy this sophisticated place. Further south it goes past Biarritz into the sheltered bay of St Jean de Luz or to Hendaye, both charming fishing villages in which the Basque influence also finds its way into culinary delights. The port of San Sebastián on the Spanish side is at the easternmost end of Bahía de La Concha Bay, at the foot of the Sagrado Corazón statue that crowns the Monte Urgull hill. It is a small, triangular port with a fishing and yachting area.

Thanks to the clear structure, the skipper can quickly find approaches, harbours and anchorages and is informed of important navigational details that also appear in the NV Charts app. The chart series impresses with its optimal scales and balanced sheet cuts.
