On the way to Greenland, a very special passenger embarked aboard Tara: Olivier Petit, naval architect and one of the ‘fathers’ of the schooner. He made the first drawings and designed the forms that led to the construction of the “Antartica” in 1989 under the direction of Jean-Louis Etienne. On the way to Greenland, we took the opportunity to follow the architect into the belly of TARA, his eye always alert and his pencil ready for action.
