Damien Renovation

On May 25, 1969 in La Rochelle, Gérard Janichon and Jérôme Poncet who were 17 years old at that time, went out aboard Damien for a 5 year round-the-world.

When they came back on September 22,1973 to La Rochelle, Damien's legend was born.Following that, it was designated an historical monument.

Sometime later, the boat was purchassed by Hubert Chevigny and then abandoned in the Vieux Port's shipyard in La Rochelle.

In 2012, during a conversation in the Grand Pavois Organisation's office was born the project of Damien's restauration.
