    "Anyway that's fine to see a number of French charts on your site. I'm
    feeling home on your site, since I have sailed many times in the areas you
    are displaying !"
    
    Those charts cover a corner of France with which I, too am very familiar,
    in my 8-metre boat, though those days are now over, so this is pure
    nostalgia.
    
    I invite Navlist members to take a good look at the way that coast is lit.
    The French navigation lighting is quite superb; well thought out to remove
    ambiguity, in the choice of sectors and leading-lines. I have always felt
    well-looked-after in making those tricky passages in the dark, well before
    the days of GPS. Far better than we get on our side of the Channel.
