#6 🇺🇸 Eric Tabarly, sailing and innovation

Eric Tabarly's story, his (sailing) race towards innovation

Season 1, episode 12
7 min / Published

On June 15, 2021, 400 years after the "Pilgrim Fathers" crossed the Atlantic, the Mayflower left Plymouth in England to cross the ocean. A feeling of déjà vu, but this new homonymous ship, 4 centuries later, is an autonomous vessel. Its full name being: the Mayflower Autonomous Ship.

Unfortunately, the attempt to cross the Atlantic without any sailors was a failure. Nevertheless, this project succeeded in proving to the general public that the race for innovation in the maritime world is still going strong. 

What would Eric Tabarly, one of the greatest sailors, have thought of this autonomous vessel?

This is the question we will try to answer with Coralie Trigano, Export Sales Manager at Preligens.
