Several events take place during the year: the Raid Granville-Chausey (June 19 2016) or the Granville-Chausey crossing (reservation at the reception), but most awaited is undoubtedly Les Régates de Chausey. Granville
Organized every years for two days in August, we find the dory races (typical boat of the island rowing or motor), “chausiais” dinghies (small sailing boat marina), but also a regatta for children.

Games that may involve children and adults are held on the plain.

On the island, a snack-bar and a restaurant will be there to greet you.

 

To get there, the Jolie France company makes up more than ten passages by day, by three launches in summer.
