      Twenty-One Years Like Eric Tabarley Fails
      On the night of June 12/13, 1998, the famous yachtsman Eric Tabarly didn’t — in the Irish Sea, he was hit by a geek from the board of his beloved Pen Duick; can wash off the board, no place on the yacht at all.

Amazingly, just a year earlier in the same Irish Sea, he won the Fasntet Race aboard Aquitaine Innovations. Less than a month before his death, he celebrated the birthday of his beloved yacht – the gaff tender of Pen Duick, bought by his father. And in June I went to distill this yacht to Scotland to continue the celebrations – but fate decided this time differently …

Fishermen found his body more than a month later.

In France, they cherish the memory of their great compatriot, who turned France into an outstanding sailing power. Twenty years after his death, in Lorient, where Tabarly began his racing career, the wonderful Sailing Museum named after him was opened.
