Launched 40 years ago in France's Atlantic seaside town La Rochelle, Le Grand Pavois is a magnet for boat enthusiasts and seasoned seamen. For the 40-year anniversary, from September 19 to 24, organizers are bringing back some of the show's most popular boats from the 1970s to the present day, as well as the highlight of the show, a three-masted barque built in the late 19th century.
