Photographer's Note

I already talked here about how tired one can get when participating to a maritime festival aboard a traditional sailboat. Days are tough (because sailing these boats is a lot of work!), evenings' celebrations are long and nights are short. Every minute of quiet and rest is precious.

Here an other example, aboard the bisquine "La Granvillaise", moored near to her (almost) sistership "La Cancalaise" (with the black hull). I already talked a lot about the bisquines here. These boats are beautiful, powerful, and very physical to sail (everything is done "the old way"). Using a folded sail as a pillow, a crewmate is enjoying a moment's rest, during the celebration of the 10th birthday of the schooner "La Recouvrance", in Brest in July 2002.

PS: although tiring, such festivals are enormous fun, and a lot of pleasure!
