Wow! Seven months before the event and the entry list is already full with a couple of reserves desperately hoping someone will drop out. As always, the field comprises a fine mix of the best of British, including Austin Healey, Jaguar, Land Rover, and MG, plus continental marques such as Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and Porsche.
Our original plans to start from Cancale have had to be revised and we´re now starting on the Pointe du Decolle in the delightful little resort of Saint Lunaire, 8 miles west of St Malo.
From the rocky Cote de Emeraude we´ll head south to an area we haven´t visited for several years - the Gulf de Morbihan. This is a land of prehistoric standing stones and magnificent abbeys and castles set amongst the lush valleys running down to the Baie de Quiberon.
As regular participants would expect, our hotel - the Hotel du Golf de Saint Laurent in Ploemel - has all the facilities to accommodate us in comfort, complete with a swimming pool and fitness suite. But, most importantly, it has good private parking and an excellent restaurant.
