Staying at quay often means open house for TARA. The presence of the schooner in Lorient during the Volvo Ocean Race was no exception, even embodied by a familiar figure aboard: Philippe Duflot. This highly active retiree has been volunteering for three years and has become one of Tara’s ambassadors. His talent? Introducing the vessel to dozens of visitors of all ages every day, and accompanying their first steps aboard the schooner. The opportunity was too good not to capture the fascinated gazes of the younger visitors and pay tribute to such a patient and tireless guide.
