Guide de manœuvre by Éric Tabarly, introduction and drawings by Titouan Lamazou

Guide de manœuvre by Éric Tabarly. Prefaced and illustrated by Titouan Lamazou In 1977, Éric Tabarly asked Titouan Lamazou, then on board the Pen Duick VI, to illustrate the guide on sailing maneuvers that he had been working on for some time. The two friends developed this project as they sailed through the Marquesas, Tuamotu, Gambier and Austral Islands, up to Tahiti. The end result was this Guide de manœuvre, first published in 1978 by Éditions du Pen Duick, then in 2008 by Editions du Télégramme, prefaced by Titouan Lamazou. The work sums up Éric Tabarly’s immense experience, acquired throughout a lifetime of sailing, while its illustrations reflect life on board ship.

In his clear, precise text, Éric Tabarly methodically describes every situation that a good sailor needs to know how to master. From simple docking and casting-off maneuvers to delicate sail adjustment in order to get the most from a boat’s movement, all these tips are accompanied by anecdotes gleaned from the Pen Duick’s decks.

The new edition of this mythical work, which had fallen out of print, now comes enriched with an original painting by Titouan Lamazou on its cover.
