The famous French 3-masted Marite, built in 1923 as a fishing vessel for Terre Neuve. She went under major repair and restoration steps in Cherbourg since 2006 and was under completion at Saint Vaast la Hougue (furniture, rigging,…) since 2010 before here departure to Granville this month. Here she was laid along the pier in Saint Vaast la Hougue to set the masts, in conjunction with other traditional sailing boats from Normandy waiting for high tide. Thanks toSylvain Viau
