He is accompanied by another guest, Frédéric Verdeil, president of the Siloé association. In this fifth issue, a report is dedicated to a young traditional marine carpenter. Ossian Bataille thus recounts the making of his Opticassous. He also explains the need to transmit the learning of the lateen sail to the youngest. On the artists side, the visual artist Marie-José Doutres will be honored in the Full lighthouse section.
The maritime heritage of the Mediterranean is also in words
Nacelle, rigging, parrot, halyard, shroud… These words are those of the traditional naval architecture of Occitania. It is these nacelles that hoist the lateen sail. Because the sea is also those men and women who inhabit it and experience it.
