The municipality of Pléneuf-Val-André is located 20 km east of Saint-Brieuc.
Pléneuf was originally known as Plou Nevez (the new settlement), and
was probably settled in the Vth century on the site of a former Roman
The sea resort of Val-André was created in 1880 by Charles Cottard, a collaborator of Ferdinand de Lesseps. This wide, low valley ending in a large sand beach was then known as Val en Dret. Within a few years, a promenade, villas and hotels were built and the new resort merged with Pléneuf. The port of Dahouët is known since the beginning of the XVth century as a place from which grain and cider produced in the hinterland were shipped. The masons and carpentars of the village were also famous. The port developed in the XIXth century with the Grande Pêche in Newfoundland; quays were built in 1822 only.
Yacht Club du Val-André (YCVA) is based in the port of Dahouët.
The club is the organizer of the race Trois jours d'Armor
The burgee of YCVA is quartered red-blue by a white saltire. It might have been inspired by the municipal arms of Pléneuf-Val-André, shown on the municipal website as: De gueules fretté argent au chef de sable au léopard d'argent accompagné de sept coquilles du même ordonnées 4 et 3 (Gules fretty argent a chief sable a lion passant guardant between in chief four and in base three escallops fesswise argent). Both Brian Timms and GASO give the coat of arms as Per fess sable a lion... gules fretty argent.
