Jolie Brise

In 2013 Jolie Brise celebrated the centenary anniversary of her construction by the Paumelle yard in Le Havre in 1913. The world famous, gaff-rigged pilot cutter was the last boat to carry the royal mail under sail and has won the Fastnet Race three times, including the inaugural race in 1925. In 2015 and 2016 she was the overall winner of  the Tall Ships Races.

Jolie Brise is owned, maintained and sailed by the pupils of Dauntsey's School.
