The 'Dragous Jaguen' (pronounced Dragou Jagouin) does not look like other boats, with its chunky lines and imposing sails. Exceptionally wide (almost half the length of its hull), high freeboard and heavy for its size, it appears impressively powerful for a boat of this scale. But it wasn't its looks that drove fishermen from the Arguenon estuary to design a boat with such rustic elegance. It is incredibly well-adapted for this type of fishing. The power provided by its large sails and its heavy displacement makes it ideal for beam trawling (bottom trawling) and shellfish dredging. It also allows the boat to maintain its speed even with low winds. Finally, thanks to its modest size, the 'Dragous' could also be propelled by oars when the sea was calm.
Come and try your hand at traditional sailing on the 'Dragous' in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
You will see some remarkable sites, such as the Hébihens archipelago, Fort La Latte, and Cap Fréhel.
Sessions last 2h30 and are run by qualified instructors who adapt the lesson to suit your expectations and ability as well as the weather conditions.
