A CENTURY OF FRIENDSHIP, BRETON FISHERMEN IN CORNWALL AND SCILLY
A Century of Friendship written by John Mcwilliams.
The first Breton Crabber, The Adventurer, arrived in the Isles of Scilly in the Spring of 1902. For most of the 20th century the Breton fishermen and their colourful boats were regular visitors to Cornwall. Anchoring each evening at the Lizard, Newlyn, St Marys, St Martins, St Ives, Newquay and Padstow where they made many friends.
They sailed to Cornwall from Carnaret, Audienne, Le Conquet, Douarnenez, Roscoff and Paimpol.
This is their story.
