Rose Blanche

Many villages on the south coast of Newfoundland are very isolated, only accessible by sea. Population is decreasing since fishing is declining, dozens of communities have been wiped off the map to save budget. But if at least 10 per cent of the inhabitants is willing to stay, a village can remain.

Rose Blanche is at the end of the road, a good shelter for boats, well know for her lighthouse. We meet Christian, he is slowly crossing the Atlantic back to Brittany, after he did the Ostar race from Plymouth to Newport. A solo race very difficult this year, only a quarter of the skippers arrived, others had to give up, four boats sank!
