The FR5 starts in the history-rich town of Douarnenez with its large fishing port. Here you also have the notorious Bay of Biscay in front of your eyes. The nautical chart leads along the Île de Sein, which is about 8 km from the coast. The Bay of Audierne stretches from the Pointe du Raz to the Pointe de Penmarch. The entire bay proves to be an exceptionally beautiful and natural area with 10 km of dune area. Concarneau, a medieval port town, is also worth a visit. The Glénan Islands, 10 nautical miles from Concarneau, are also worth a visit. Between rocks, you enter the archipelago to the buoy field.

NV Atlas Chart Format

The nautical chart series are especially designed by nautical experts and passionate water sports enthusiasts to meet the needs of recreational boating.
The NV Atlas has a very flat staple binding in the middle, so that the course triangle can also be used there without any problems. This innovative development makes it possible to look up charts quickly and always have them in the best order at the same scale. The atlas has an A2 format when opened and an A3 format when closed. The NV Atlas is delivered in a plastic cover protected against splash water. This modern nautical chart format is very popular on sailing boats as well as on motor yachts and is the preferred choice of many of our customers.
