Larche en peche

The big Breton stern trawler Larche was well known on the fishing grounds off Cornwall, especially north of the Scillys. She was one of the boats who gained some notoriety back in the 80s when she, along with the other 'music' boats from Concarneau (Harmony & Rhapsody), were involved in trawling over the gear of some local netters - to great cost as they wiped out almost all of of the boats' gear!

The skippers were pretty gritty and gruff characters - but subsequently, if you spoke to them in French they were pretty amenable - it just shows how it is always better to talk!
