Beautiful L’Anse a Beaufils

We stayed for three days in this beautiful harbour, maintaining the engine (replaced both fuel filters, removing problem of presence of air in the fuel system), hiking and biking around, grocery shopping, socializing with sailors. There is a famous restaurant with a musical program on one side and a microbrewery with a small restaurant where you can try freshly brewed beer and taste local fishery delicacies. In addition, right from the marina, there are trails along the river and into the mountains, where you can pick tasty mushrooms. One of the places where, by coincidence or fate, you meet new friends who want to help you and are able to hear about your project. Thanks, Bruno and Dominique, for your help and attention to our project Sail for Science.

Plot of data from CTD cast in the L’Anse a Beaufils at high tide. Generally say, a good state of the environment in the harbour with normal oxygen saturation and Chl a and fDOM concentrations. The backscatter’s transparency is higher due to the river water flow into the harbour.

Good Luck, Bruno!
