A chase between two centenarians

On the island of Noirmoutier, this is a highlight of the summer. All the most beautiful hulls are there. The islanders of course, but others come from far away for the event. I am delighted to have been invited to create the poster for this 2023 edition.

By chance, the two 8mR (metre Rule) in this image each have an incredible and common story. It’s about a famous female skipper in the 1920s and an Olympic gold medalist. I tell it here Thank you François Martin for the commission and Valerie Lanata for the inspiration.
