Hello Beverley,
Very pretty and interesting pictures of the old Breton way of mooring the boats.
Yet I still wonder something. I suppose one arrives at high tide. In the other case, the boats would have to be towed across the land. But how do people go ashore at high tide? Perhaps just to the left of this photo is a quay where people can jump off board? Afterwards the slowly retreating water takes the boats a little further seawards. If so, what about those who arrived with the boat at the far right. No possibility for them to come ashore dry.
I like these well composed pictures very much with the long rows of mooring pools and boats and the surrounding rocky coast. However, I do not understand the process.
Best regards, Paul

Thank you for your critique and thoughtful notes, Paul.
No, there is no jetty. I suppose the sailors have to be very thoughtful about their timing or have an inflatable to access their boat.

If you click on the location on my photograph, 'Gwin Zegal', you will see a photograph that I posted earlier, which shows the moored boats from cliff top above. You will be able to see the extent of the moorings.

Have a good day,
