Discover the Pen Duick, a wooden model of the legendary Eric Tabarly racing cutter. Saved from misery by Eric and his father when the former had only 7 years, the Pen Duick was the first of a series of boats with which Tabarly won many victories in various races. Guided by a detailed step by step instructions you can complete your model of this legendary ship.
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 in the waters of the English Channel when steering his old Pen Duick to participate in a regatta of classic sailing in Scotland.
