Éric Tabarly (1931 - 1998) is the most famous French navigator in history. He has won some of the most prestigious ocean regattas and his victories have inspired a new generation of great French sailors such as Loïck Peyron, Olivier de Kersauson and Marc Pajot, who are some of the best navigators 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 by the French.

Eric Tabarly's second victory at Ostar, in 1976, was a considerable event in France, as it put a definitive end to the superiority of England - the great historic rival of the French - in the great ocean races. After this victory, Tabarly descended the Champs Elysées triumphantly, cheered by the crowd.

This telegram, for its content signed by the champion most admired by the French in the 1970s , is unique and extremely rare. A document for anyone who loves France, sailing and racing.
