The peninsula Quiberon is located in the départment Morbihan in the southern Bretagne (Brittany).
The sailing area is sheltered from the open atlantic by the peninsula itself, stretching for 14km southwards into the atlantic, and a few islands south of it.
The west coast of the peninsula is called the Côte Sauvage – the wild coast, as the next land to the west is Newfoundland and the waters of the Bay of Biscay can be wild indeed. The east coast, where the sailing area is, can deliver perfect sailing conditions, already experienced by many OK sailors during the 2013 Pre-European regatta and the Europeans 2013 in Carnac on the same waters.
Apart from great sailing conditions, the area is also known for the fabulous cuisine, the quality of the seafood is second to none in the world.
