Located in southern Brittany, Lorient is a city of the Ocean, boasting no less than five ports: the marina for leisure, another for cruises and passenger craft, a fishing harbour, a trading port and a military port.

Founded by Colbert in the 17th century, Lorient's development was boosted significantly by international trade of exotic items. Aside the nautical activities, of which there are many, one can get into kayaking, kite-surfing, sky-diving and golf. Yet above all Lorient is a place for sailing, as would have testified the famed Eric Tabarly.
