Regatta in boat wardrobes

A project conceived by Olivier Tourenc in the context of the exhibition Endeavours and Masterpieces

In partnership wih the Société Nautique de Marseille and the Club La Pelle.

This regatta is a chance to deploy the flotilla of the five “training boat wardrobe” units (or ABE: armoire bateau école) in a competition that will take place near the Old Port of Marseille.

Prior to the regatta, from June 25 to July 2, this project benefits from a display of the five boat wardrobes involved in the competition, housed in the exhibition room at the Société Nautique de Marseille, to convey the intention of the project.

Club La Pelle is supporting the project, by offering to its young regatta competitors the chance to steer the ABEs during the competition, and also by adding ABE navigation to their introductory course in early June, in which schoolchildren learn to navigate the small training boat l’Optimist .

Saturday June 29 – Near the Old Port of Marseille.
The regatta will be visible from the shore.
