PHOTOS: Classic never goes out of style

Published on August 18th, 2013

In 2013 Jolie Brise is celebrating the centenary anniversary of her construction by the Paumelle yard in Le Havre in 1913.

The world famous, gaff-rigged pilot cutter was the last boat to carry the royal mail under sail and has won the Fastnet Race three times, including the inaugural race in 1925.

Here are a couple of pictures from Rick Tomlinson of Jolie Brise rounding the Fastnet Rock from the Glandore Classic Regatta.
