A hidden privateer port
Port Racine, the smallest harbor in France, is located in Saint-Germain-des-Vaux at the western tip of the Cotentin peninsula. Jacques Prévert lived not far from there, in Omonville-la-Petite, and praised the charm of the region. The port owes its name to one of the last Napoleonic appointed privateers, Captain François-Médard Racine (1774-1817), who had it built to hide his ship, the Embuscade. He died offshore en route to Guernsey in 1817.
