L'association des Voiles Latines a rénové Aubane, une barquette marseillaise.

At the Plagette construction site, the volunteers of the Voiles Latines de Sète and Bassin de Thau are not idle. A year ago, Albatros was launched after five years of restoration. Last March, the Loud found its element again after fifteen years of abandonment.

On July 6, Aubane will once again float in the Mediterranean. Marseille boat, 5.30 m long, built in 1948, it has been sailing since 2008 under the flag of the association. An assessment carried out in 2023 revealed numerous damages linked to time.

Advice from Anne, the ship's carpenter

Around thirty volunteer members advised by Anne, the marine carpenter, set about dismantling the defective parts. Floors, frames, extensions, beams, beams, broadsides, pregirds, beams, legs, deck boards, elongates, strakes… They were reshaped one by one in strict compliance with the original construction, and thanks only to the generosity of sympathizers and members.

These successive restorations allow those initiated into traditional naval carpentry to pass on the gestures, know-how, helping hands and specificities of the master carpenters of yesteryear.
