Troubles about designer and name... - 04.01.2018 by Gurvan Jaouen
In some race reports of 1959, F 12 is listed christened "Ballon Rouge". This name appears several times about her. And she is also said to be a Copponex design...
In several articles, Bravade (then Arion) is quoted and pictured as F 11.
Still about her sailnumber... - 26.03.2013 by Gurvan Jaouen
A picture of "Bravade" displayed in "le Yacht" in 1956 shows her sailing with sailnumber F 11...
Was this number her original one, before being given to Alouette (F 7?)and then "Bravade" becoming F 12 in 1957?
Name, owner... - 26.03.2013 by Gurvan Jaouen
The original F 12 sailnumber was discovered in a list from 1957 in "Le Yacht" nautical magazine.
F 12 is "Bravade", owned by Mr Plantier. She was designed by Camatte and built at Chiesa boatyard. She had not been yet spotted on regattas at the end of 1957.
