A page on Port Racine, just near Saint-Germain

I missed Port Racine in the list of places of VT, but no harm done, I just link it to the nearest place of "importance". It's not for nothing that it is not available in the list, as it is the smallest harbour in France and actually only contains a very small port for little boats, sheltered between stone walls from the raging tides that Normandy is quite famous for. Port Racine itself has only a few buildings near the harbour, so the number of inhabitants will not top over a few dozain.

Don't get entangled in the many ropes

When the tide is low, the small harbour of Port Racine falls dry and to prevent the ships from floating away with the changing tides, they are tight up with ropes. In Port Racine this is often done on both sides of the harbour walls and so the small boats eventually hang in between the to ropes and in the air or in the sand. The harbour is like a spiderweb in which one can get entangled by walking through it (-:
