Pen Duick model ship
The Pen Duick yachts are ocean racing yachts from the 1960s and 1970s. They were built for French yachtsman Éric Tabarly, and he had a hand in each design.
Pen Duick would go on to become the story of men passionate about the world of water sports. With their considerable know-how, experience and above all knowledge of the sea, they started producing studies with national and international committees and establishing nautical events adapted to the needs of their partners, like the double-handed transatlantic from Lorient to Bermuda and back (1979 and 1983).
At the same time, Pen Duick also organised two major record-breaking attempts for Atlantic crossings during the 1980s. In July 1980 Eric Tabarly smashed the Atlantic record on board “Paul Ricard” (held since 75 by Charly Barr on Atlantic), making the crossing in 10 days 5h 14mn and 20s. In 1981 it was Marc Pajot’s turn on “Elf Aquitaine” to cut the record to 9 days, 10h 6mn and 34s during the West-East transatlantic from New York to Brest.
Today Pen Duick is one of the most important players in the national and international yachting world.
As a creator and organizer of major races with a sporting, economic and political dimension, Pen Duick has organised numerous nautical events since 1979, including:
– The double-handed Lorient – Bermuda– Lorient transatlantic in 1979 and 1983
– The Lorient – St Pierre et Miquelon – Lorient transatlantic in 1987
– The Lorient – St Bartholomew – Lorient transatlantic in 1989
