Pen Duick was one of six sailboats sailed by Aric Tabarly, a former officer in the French navy who is often considered the father of French yachting. Tabarly was a record-setting distance sailor who won several notable races aboard his boats, all named Pen Duick. He was lost at sea when struck by a gaff during heavy swell and knocked overboard from his yacht while on the way to Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The Pen Duick was one of the most beautiful sailboats and very fashionable.
