Through the gaps webcams: Raz de Seine webcam added.

One hundred and twenty seven miles south south east of Newlyn is the promontory, Pointe de Raz - the Breton equivalent of Lands End. This live webcam looks beyond the Jument lighthouse out over the Raz de Seine - notorious for its horrendously big seas and overfalls during storms. 

In the distance is the tiny Ile de Seine population 214 and barely 15m above sea level. The Raz de Seine is avoided by small boats in stormy weather - one French trawler steaming south is reputed to have rolled through 360˚ when hit by a huge sea on her way home - and survived to tell the tale!
