Rivière Sens’ Marina (Marina de Rivière Sens)

Marina de riviere sens 1I grew up in a Township called Gourbeyre located in Basse-Terre Island. I always really enjoyed the fact that this Township is so multi-faceted. Indeed, between Sea, Mountain and natural pools, there are so many gorgeous sceneries and things to do in Gourbeyre. In today blog post I am going to introduce an interesting place especially for sailors and boats lovers. Without further ado, let’s find out more about Rivière Sens Marina called SUD-ANCRAGE and lively surroundings.

Rivière Sens Marina SUD-ANCRAGE is also the perfect place to follow the transatlantic sailing race “Route du rhum (Rum road)” from Saint-Malo (City located in Brittany region in France) to Pointe-à-Pitre (Grande-Terre Island). This transatlantic single-handed yacht race takes place every four years since 1978. Finally, if you want to assist sea-oriented or water sports events, this is the place to go.
