Every four years the French city of Brest in Bittany hosts a huge gathering of charismatic classic boats from around the world ranging from the tiniest rowing boat to the enormous square riggers. In 1992 we took our restored little Torbay Minnow and found ourselves on the water by day amidst over 2000 boats and ashore each night the crews and organisers joined in an enormous musical streetside, dockside party. These are scans of photos I took at the time.
