Cité de la voile Eric-Tabarly

Recommended
Following on from the success of Éric Tabarly, this huge museum is dedicated to sailing and ocean racing, with exhibits that range from the design of the very first sailing boats to the world's major yacht races. Interactive exhibitions are organised in conjunction with local nautical companies, while simulators provide visitors with an insight into sailing a racing boat. The very first Pen Duick yacht is also moored at the pontoon here.
