The Recouvrance


The Recouvrance is the replica of an aviso, a military ship from the beginning of the 19th century, intended to transmit urgent advice/messages to the coasts of Africa and the West Indies.
Today the Goélette, led by a crew of 5 professional sailors, offers numerous sailings on the Atlantic coast and in particular in the harbor of Brest from the quay Commandant Malbert.

Cruises from a few hours to a few days: weekly, full day, half day or Sunset (evening).
The opportunity to sail on an old rig while participating in maneuvers on board.

La Recouvrance welcomes all types of audiences of all ages: individuals, birthdays, associations, groups, works councils, seminars, meetings.
The program and reservations are available on the La Recouvrance website.
Tickets on sale at the Brest Métropole tourist office and at the La Recouvrance office located at 55 quai Eric Tabarly.
