Photographer's Note

Another (and probably last one) picture of the maritime festival in Douarnenez last July, hoping to make you feel what it's like to be on board.

We are on board, once again, the bisquine La Granvillaise, sailing in company of the schooner La Recouvrance (replica of a boat used for fast transport of mail and orders during war time, about 150 years ago). The boats are very close, sailing at the same speed, with a fair wind blowing. The moment is just magical as both boats seem to be getting closer, closer... but the crew is alert, ready to pull on the sheets, should it prove necessary to manoeuvre the boat quickly. Quite a breathless moment.
