Overview

AVEL, center of sand yachting on the coasts of Brittany, in bay of Mont St Michel, on the strand of HIREL. AVEL proposes to make you discover the pleasures of the sand yachting in the bay of Mont St Michel, on the town of Hirel, 15 min from St Malo. This outdoor activity can give you strong sensations as soon as you start it. The way how to drive a sand yacht can be acquired very quickly, and will develop the desire to discover the whole strand of Hirel, its fauna and its flora. This activity is well suited for both novice and experienced audiences in the sailing world, adults and children (8 years old) in single-seater. For the youngest, two-seaters are also available. The practice of sand yachting is a fun sport, pleasant to practice with family and friends. We are open every day, from 10 am to 7 pm, on reservation. Aurelien FAVRON and Johann FAVE, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sports, will be glad to welcome you to AVEL, and make you discover their passion.

Super activity. Booked online at last minute. First-time with 8 & 11 yr old boys who loved it. Wear sunglasses as sand spits in your face due to speed.
