The following morning we reported our strange encounter of the previous night to the harbour master. We came to the conclusion that the motor boat had been trying to rendezvous on some nefarious business with the sailing boat that we had seen some minutes before and mistaken us and then Kokopelli for his partner. We were also left wondering whether a customs search on a boat further along the visitor’s pontoon the previous afternoon, together with the presence of three fit looking young men, one carrying a machine pistol over his shoulder had had any connection with our incident.
We all decided that the night was not an option for another attempt and that we would depart in the afternoon of 2 July and make our way to Saint Evette, the first possible mooring after the Raz. We spent the day sightseeing in Douarnenez.
