Since the beginning of time, Saint-Malo, the Capital of the seas, has always been a city of sailors and great navigators driven by the desire for adventure and conquest.
In the days of yesteryear, Jacques Cartier, Duguay-Trouin and Surcouf roamed the seas and continents in search of fortune. Later on, they handed over to the crews of the Terres Neuves, the famous fishing boats that embarked on long campaigns in the North Sea.
Today, this great seafaring tradition is perpetuated by their descendants, who have become talented skippers and participate in high profile sporting events such as the Route du Rhum and the Québec/Saint-Malo transatlantic race
