Association Honfleuraise des Vieux Gréements - Vintage boat association
In Honfleur, the 'Honfleuraise Association of Vintage Boats' strives to keep member boats sailing the Calvados coastline and moored in the Vieux Bassin harbour.
The boats belong to associations or to private owners who wish to promote local and regional maritime heritage.
Based in Honfleur, the 'Honfleuraise Association of Vintage Boats' brings together a dozen 15-to-60-foot traditional ships, dating from 1903 to 1995.
The members of this maritime heritage association give logistical help to vintage boats visiting the Vieux Bassin in Honfleur, near the Lieutenance and Saint Catherine's church.
They also promote regional 'savoir-faire' by regularly taking the ships out to sea.
