For all interested in historic sailing vessels, oriental history and music, the Festival du Chant de Marin has a main theme of ‘travels to the East’ this year, which invites all sails with an oriental link to join them in Paimpol, Brittany. The website shows they already have some amazing lateen sails on the guest list, but no junks (yet).
If you’d like to reserve a place in the picturesque harbour during the festival you’ll need to contact them through their website, and don't forget to add your name to this list so we can make this into a proper junket!
Well ... it's a possibility.
To my shame, I had to look at the map to remind myself where Paimpol is. South of Île-de-Bréhat, which I remember as being a pleasant place to visit. And east of Lézardrieux, which is also a pleasant place to visit.
