Where Can I Find Boat + Skipper to Hire in Brittany, France?

Hello all,
this is my first post here, so hopefully I'm putting it in the right place.
A very good friend of mine, who loves sailing will be getting married this summer, and we wanted to make him a bachelor party that would be a bit more pleasurable than going to a nightclub, and have a girl jump out of a cake, so we decided to make our weekend on a long weekend off the Brittany coast in France (where he lives). The only thing is I haven;t the foggiest idea of where to look for a captain with a boat (for about 8 people) to hire for the three days. If anyone has any ideas, links, or better places I can post my request, I would be much obliged.

Thanks all,

How about 3 days of cruising with the Swedish Bikini team?

You two are just oh so helpful.

drparallax, a Google search with "boat charters France" came up with many hits. Most charter companies have the option of hiring a captain with the boat.

Also consider the barge cruises. That's something on my To Do List.

However, in (somewhat) support of James, this might be a lot of work (provisioning, logistics, etc.) and you might consider a one day or sunset cruise and have it catered maybe.

Good luck.

Actually, the barge cruise in France is on my bucket list as well. I've also seen a company in Ireland doing them.
