Hermel Exhibition

Mylène Paquette is the first North American woman to ever successfully row solo across the North Atlantic; the Hermel was her boat.

Having travelled from Halifax, Canada to Lorient, France, in just 129 days, the boat will forever stay as a reminder of its captain’s strength and tenacity.

This unique boat, made and designed by the late Hermel Lavoie, is put on display and made accessible to tourists, cruise ship passengers, visitors and the population, as well as being used for educational purposes during school visits.
