With the Vedettes de l’Odet is the shipping company operating the crossings to the Glénan: Blue Cruises, in Concarneau, will not provide the immediate outputs to the archipelago. “Uncertainty prevails, I count the best four to five weeks for an eventual recovery, so it will not be before July,” says Frederic Evain, head of the company. Is that you run a business that has never been able to start this year, the containment having destroyed all the early season, with the cancellation of all group of retired outlets, which represent 80% of operation period.
