January 2022 Picture of the Month

For the first 'Picture of the Month' for 2022, I offer you an image from my article on the history of lifeboats – titled For Those in Peril on the Sea – which appears in the January 2022 issue of Vintage Spirit. Lifeboats in France are the same instantly-recognisable colours as British ones – here the lifeboats from la Trinité sur Mer – the Eric Taberly – and Lorient were photographed taking part in the annual Fêtes de Mer in Le Port in Vannes on a beautiful baking hot day in summer 2018. French lifeboats are operated by the Societe Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer. The fact that the beautiful replica of a 19th century frigate had just unfurled her sails was an added bonus.
