The English Channel. It's the body of water between Norther France/Normandy and Souther England.

The Normans did not invade the UK - there was no "UK" until the 18th. Century. As regards bodies of water - look at a map - same for ports.

The Normans gathered a large army and needed a large fleet to transport it across the English channel. Although the main ports in Normandy were Cherbourg William needed to gather the army and the ships from further afield so most left from the Flemish ports like St Valery. Partly the reason why many ships left from Flanders rather than Normandy was because they were driven there by storms and put into harbours along the coast to wait for the winds to change.

The army used surfboards to get across the English Channel from Normandy to Hastings. It's in all the history books.
