Brezellec

Although difficult access by the coast,

the handle of Brézellec (in Breton port of mackerels or hill of the watch) from time immemorial was a shelter very snuffed with open of bay of Douarnenez. Protected from the dominant winds by high cliffs and released from any shallow water, the handle constitutes a sure damping, even for ships of average tonnage like the boats fish ponds of Sein and Camaret.

crtIn 1877, thirty boats have their fastener there, and deep water damping can accommodate many fishermen in search of refuge. This same year a 185 meters long cross chain, on which is fixed a dozen buoys, is tended between two points of rock. These buoys make it possible to net lines of mooring and to thus offer a total safety of damping allowing even the wintering of fishing boats.

Coastal shelters

Thereafter, in particular in 1883 and 1889, various installations, cut steps in cliff, pose of a winch, a cargo boom and from a hoist, will facilitate the use of this natural unloading dock. In 1926 a quay level is arranged.

En 1950 puis en 1965/1966, de grosses réparations suite à tempêtes durent y être effectuées. En septembre 1988 le port abritait 5 bateaux professionnels et une 50 de
plaisanciers 6 mois par an. La popularité de ce portabri est toujours intacte, chaque année, d’avril à octobre, plus de soixante canots viennent y prendre leur mouillage.
Certains sont encore hissés à flanc de cale lorsque souffle un fort Nordet.
