    "Louis Le Grand" French 50 gunner 1700s(?)

    If this model is at NMM Rochefort, it is not visible. I have never seen Rochefort. The photo is taken in Paris. Maybe the model is now in the reserves of the museum Rochefort (???)

    La mer est parfois très grises même aux Caraïbes, et le large pas toujours aussi beau qu'on veuille bien le croire. Maiiiiiis c'est vrai que ça fait un peu tristounet.

    Test du Requin

    Je comprend bien la difficulté à modéliser ce point ! Ça reste une belle modélisation C'est bien de voir un autre gréement et peu usuel qui plus est.

    French Frigate L'Hermione

    Here is the video, to my knowledge this is the first time a video about Hermione does not paint an idyllic sail where "everything is beautiful". - sea sickness - almost crushed fingers - a fore-braces that gets stuck in the night with many wind - a jib difficult to bring back - Fatigue, doubt to go up to tighten the mainsail and the pains. The "real life" sailing. Away from the postcards. An eighteenth century rigging with the enormous requirement that it implies for the sailors, from the commander to the topman. https://www.tf1.fr/tf1/sept-a-huit/videos/a...l-hermione.html But it's fantastic to a live this !!!

    Little news. After leaving Marseille, l'Hermione crosses the Gulf of Lion to anchor again in the bay of Rosas.
