Recouvrance is the retort of an escort vessel-schooner of the beginning of the XIXe century intended to pass on the urgent notices towards coasts of Africa and in the Antilles. The construction of Recouvrance, which began in 1990, was presented to the public on the occasion of Brest 1992. Recouvrance is the boat ambassador and the property of the city of Brest.
His name results from the district of Brest of the same name. In saint-Catherine's parish (the former name of Recouvrance), we honored a statue of virgin, Notre-Dame of Recouvrance which gave its name to the district. To recover the earth it is to find the earth: we asked Notre-Dame of Recouvrance for making a good return for its earth of departure.
Recouvrance is a topsail schooner, a retort of the schooners of type "Iris", a model drawn by the naval architect Hubert in 1817. These military buildings were intended for the transport of urgent folds, for the surveillance of the trade traffic and for the repression of the draft of the slaves on coasts of Africa and for the Antilles.
