Deauville: all good addresses for insiders
Move: in the land of black rocks
Its ocher sail slams in the port of Deauville.It is a famous shellfish, built in 1935, the "François-Monique", one of these traditional sailboats wandering in Brittany or in the North Sea and who almost died of abandonment.Bought for 1,000 francs in 1971, it miraculously survived and returned to sea, before regaining its original character and colors thanks to the Petit Foc association.
In Dives, other enthusiasts of old rigging created an associative sailing school, the Capac, over half a century ago.Then the city entrusted them with the management and restoration of a first boat, a flambart .
Since then, the association has rehabilitated and built identical to other old boats, caragognes or paddles, and organizes internships, sea trips or seine fishing.
Another association, Pays d'Auge Nature et Conservation, created in 2011, aims to promote, protect and enhance biodiversity in the Touques marshes, between Pont-l'Evêque and Deauville, by developing ecotourism.
The association has 20 to 30 volunteers, and more than 75 members.From July to September, it organizes courses and 60 dates for themed meetings to observe nature, from Roches Noires to Mont Canisy by mountain bike and kayak.
