La semaine du Golfe - Morbihan



GIGS - Flotilla 1

Appeared in the 18th century, rowboats, skiffs and other gigs, as efficient under sails as rowing, were originally service boats for ships at anchor, or were used for piloting, rescue or fishing. These boats, in full revival for twenty years, thanks to replicas and new models, allow the maritime apprenticeship of young crews. This fleet includes all types of gigs, whaling boats and "pure" rowing boats (Cornwall and the Scilly Iles)

SAIL & OAR - Flotilla 2

Voile aviron dans le Golfe

To answer to a new kind of "pleasure sailing" a flotilla of small boats "sail and oar" appeared for fifteen years on our shores: "family-boats", quickly rigged, easy to launch, these boats allow relaxed navigation and the discovery of unfrequented places. Being inspired by American and European doris, by Norwegian faerings, by boats of the Shetland or by Breton misainiers, the architects have created new types, all easily transportable: Dinghies and sail &oar designs for amateur builders, doris, clinker-built canoës, and all flat bottomed small sailing boats less than 5m


OPEN-BOATS - Flotilla 3

Designed for racing or cruising, some of them built one century ago, most of these yachts are perfectly maintained and continue a certain life-style, like Viola or Pesa.

In the 60's, amateurs with modest revenues were able to discover the pleasure of sailing with new series of boats, more affordable, bot also seaworthy, fast, safe and habitable. Thus, it is aboard boats like Corsaire, Muscadet, or Cognac, due to the genius of architects such as Herbulot and Harlé, that a lot of today yachtmen have had their first experience of sailors: Corsaire, Muscadet, Armagnac, Cognac, Cabernet, Sauvignon, Mousquetaire, Tiburon, Fisrt 18.

All the ancient fishing sailboats, but also coasters, pilots or buoy tenders, restored or identically rebuilt. Along with the Sinago and Forban du Bono, emblematic of the Morbihan Gulf, we will find "Chasse-Marées", luggers, misainiers (single lug-sail), sloops, cutters and dundees… From the Baltic herring-ships to the Bristol Pilot Cutters, the traditional working sailboats from British Islands and northern countries are also represented…

"Classic yachting ", doesn’t only mean "Sails"! There is also a beautiful motorized flotilla which associates the elegance of hulls and the mechanical ingenuity! We think of the gleaming "racing machines" of The Riviera or Lake Como at the time of "Dolce Vita" as well as the stylish day launches of the Thames or the Seine in the era of dance halls: old launches, Rivas, steam yachts, cabin-cruisers, runabouts, Chris-Craft and other ancient speedboats…
