Collignon

Normandie
It's not just Cherbourg's proximity that populates the eastern beach; a powerful north-easterly thermal draws its own crowd. Formula flyers and kiters usually ride inside the curved breakwater that protects the road from waves. It stays butter-flat and westerlies blow more consistently here than further outside. There's a strong current at the mouth and a few stones on the left at low tide. Bump-&-jump and wavesailors launch east of the breakwater to ride the open sea.
