To Philippe Petit, wishing success for his autograph book. Eric Tabarly.

Éric Tabarly (1931 - 1998) is the most famous French navigator in history. He won some of the most prestigious ocean regattas, ending the dominance of the English, who had been the French's biggest competitors for centuries, in the seas. His victories inspired a new generation of great French sailors, such as Loïck Peyron, Olivier de Kersauson or Marc Pajot, who are some of the best sailors in the world.

In addition to being a pioneer in the restoration of classic wooden sailboats, Eric Tabarly developed the concept of multi-hulls, with aerodynamic and hydrodynamic innovations that profoundly changed ocean racing. He died at sea in the south of Ireland and is, even today, one of the most admired personalities of the French.

This item belonged to French collector Philippe Petit for a book project. The meeting with Tabarly took place on RTL radio in Paris in June 1997, a year before his death.
