Let's see if any of you can find out what boat is this one
That's a nice one, Paulo!
It's Pen Duick II, the very first purpose built racing yacht for the English Transat in 1964, that made the late Éric Tabarly a living legend.

By the way, he won this solo race once again in 1976, this time not in a purpose built yacht but with Pen Duick VI, designed to race fully crewed in the Withbread .

Best regards,
