On December 31, 2005, the Abeille Bourbon left Stiff Bay downwind of Ouessant Island to meet a barge adrift in the Ouessant rail. This intervention, assistance and rescue tug intervenes in all weathers conditions to rescue men and ships in distress.

80 meters long, with a pulling force of 200 tons and 12 crew members, she takes part in the action of the French Government (symbolized by the three-color bands painted on the hull)." Accompanying her in intervention has always been a privilege for me, and I owe this image to the talent of my pilot of the day, who was making his last flight this day." Philip Plisson

Philip was born on the banks of the Loire river, and discovered La Trinité-sur-Mer when he was 4 years old. This is where his father gave him his first passion: sailing. The need of sea will not leave him anymore! At 9, he discovered his second passion: the photo thanks to his paternal grandmother who offered him his first camera. In the early 80's, Philip decided to live with his two passions: photographing to navigate and navigate to photographing. Named Painter of the French Navy in 1991, he testifies to the major events related to the sea world in order to preserve the memory of our contemporary maritimity, as had wished Richelieu creating the Corps of Painters of the Navy. Philip, as a sailor-photographer, has only one leitmotiv: to have every day a new desire of image to take and to share with you. For more information :
