You can either start with the FR6 in Lorient, the city of sailing, or travel there from the south. Because the Cité de la Voile should definitely be visited, if only to see the interactive sailing museum. This city is still home to around 90 international sports sailing teams. When you've had enough of the sailing hustle and bustle, this set of charts will take you straight to Belle-Ile, Brittany's largest island, located south of Lorient. There, in Le Palais, you will find a harbour consisting of three basins. The region around the Golf du Morhiban, an inland waterway, is highly recommended. But beware: at low tide, it is indeed low tide there. If you are already in this region, it is also worth visiting the bishop's town of Vannes. The Île de Noirmoutier, an important venue for various sailing regattas, is also worth a detour.
Thanks to the clear layout, the yachtsman can quickly find access points, harbours and anchorages and is informed of navigationally important details that also appear in the NV Charts app. The chart series impresses with its optimal scales and balanced sheet sections.
This chart set includes
- 3 Passage Charts

- 20 Details
- Code for the app
- Digital charts & navigation app
- Navigation instructions in English and French

NV Atlas Chart Format
NV Verlag nautical charts are available in an outstandingly practical, handy atlas booklet format, offering many advantages over formats from other manufacturers. 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.
