The Painting

This beautifully built and maintained French privateer [some say ‘licenced pirate… ! ] replica Schooner of war launched at Brest 96.

This study made before La Recouverance was launched, to show what a dashing ‘Goélette’ [schooner] La Recouverance  would look when rigged and under sail.

Shown here sailing in Le Goulet de Brest (‘the neck’, entrance to the extensive roads of Brest, to this day still a home of the French Navy), this superb replica was built as the result of a bar room bet with a shipwright.

He said he could build a schooner in six months.

La Recouverance was launched with great ceremony at the vast Maritime Festival Brest ’96.

Brest remains her home port, it’s possible for you to sail on this fine schooner.
