Built in 1992 this replica North Breton Lugger " Le Grand Lejon " was alongside the Old Quay this evening and has come for this years National Redwing Championships to be held here in Scilly next week. (They were held in Brittany last year). The crew on here are borrowing a local Redwing to compete in the Championships. These boats were traditionaly used for collecting sand from the low tide sand bars in the areas around St. Brieuc in North Brittany.........Robin Mawer
