Photographer's Note

Thendera is at the origin of a history of giants.
First of all, it is a Scottish billionaire, Sir Arthur Young, which require most famous of naval architects, Alfred Mylne, to build for him a large yacht. This one was carried out, in 1937, before the Second World War, by STEPHEN & SONS.
This “goélette” of 36 meters long, carries 1 000 square meters of veils, gains many regattas so easy which freezes the English competitors.
At the time of death of Sir Arthur, Thendera is sold, cut up, given up, not without to have ruined its owners. But, one says, in Great Britain, to lose his fortune for a boat is regarded as a hereditary label of elegance.
Philip Swinstead, king British of software, buys Thendera in 1994, anchors it in Antibes, in the south of France, with an annual operational budget of a half million euros for his crew of 24 men.
On this sight Thendera will cut the finishing line at the end of a regatta organized during the week of the Voiles de Saint-Tropez .
