Pardon My French epitomises the Swiftsure Spirit. This video captures their first ever Swiftsure and they’ll be back!
Hunger, Sleep Deprivation and Chill could not dull the thrill.
Skipper and crew of Pardon My French, Frederick Savoye’s Hunter-Legend 40.5 from Sloop Tavern Yacht Club, decided to make Swiftsure their first big race and they have the heart, the spirit and the stamina to go the distance. When others pulled out, they dropped their hook in Race Passage for 8 hours, determined to stay the course. Everything they did was spot on for preparation of the boat and crew with a focus on safety. Swiftsure is pleaseed to have Pardon My French and her crew show us commitment gets results. Fifth in her division – a fine result for a first-ever Swiftsure. And 12-year old Alec on the helm – a proud moment.
Skipper: Frederick Savoye
