The topsail schooner, "La Recouvrance", is the replica of an 1817 advice vessel, a rapid military ship used for the carriage of goods and for the surveillance of the African or West Indies coasts. More than a boat, the Recouvrance is a unique maritime opportunity to sail, and an intense experience. Symbolic property of the City of Brest, it is one of the flagships of the vessels sailing the coast of France.

A flavour of legend

Sailing on board La Recouvrance is an opportunity to relive the great sailing ship period and the extraordinary adventures of distant expeditions. For your entertainment, many ideas can be thought up with the complicity of the crew.

The performance and sea-keeping of La Recouvrance make it possible to set course for many destinations. It is possible to leave from other harbours, so please contact us.

Take part in the manoeuvres
