09 :: Trimaran from the Philippines

In the attractive islands of the Pacific, “territories” are island-specked waters. Their inhabitants came from the sea and were magnificent seamen, capable of taking bearings anywhere. We know they used the stars, the wind, the migrating fauna, stray light and an age-old memory. Their boats seem rudimentary to us. However, one cannot help but to admire them when one gets to know them better.

 

Lecouvie does not hesitate to show side by side the emblematic marvels of “great western sailing” and those much more ancient stemming from millennial tradition.
