A “classic” that needs to be sailed

Rocquette will go on to compete in forty races, sailed by a passionate crew and, until the early 70s, will sail the length and breadth of the western Atlantic from Ireland to Spain.

« I believe Rocquette is the strongest ocean racing hull we have built for ten years. »

Once again the boat finds a new owner exploring Mediterranean islands and competing in regattas.

Rocquette now has its home port in Douarnenez, in Brittany, and sails between Galicia and Scotland.
