HISTORY OF THE FRENCH CUTTER PEN DUICK
Discover the Pen Duick and its cutter wooden model kit. It is a wooden model of the legendary Eric Tabarly racing cutter. Saved from misery by Eric and his father when the former was only 7 years old, the Pen Duick was the first of a series of boats with which Tabarly won many victories on various races.
Born in Nantes in 1931, Tabarly developed from childhood a passion for the sea and sailing. He got great victories and sprayed records in a time when anglo-saxons dominated ocean races. Far from relaxing in the glory, he continued to build ever more efficient ships and winning races. He met his end by disappearing on the water os the English Channel when steering his old Pen Duick to participate on a regatta of classic sailing in Scotland.
