HISTORY OF CUTTER LE RENARD: A CLASSIC CORSAIR SHIP
Discover Le Renard, a wooden model of the cutter launched in Saint Malo in 1812 by the famous corsair Robert Surcouf with the main objective of attacking and catching enemy ships of commerce of France. Its actions and its legacy towards the city of Saint Malo make the Renard a symbol of the strong French naval identity.
Le Renard was the last ship armed by the famous Robert Surcouf. In September 1813, he accomplished his greatest feat by beating the English schooner HMS Alphea in battle, making the city of Saint Malo a refuge for the families of the greatest corsairs in the world. In 1991, a replica of the original Renard was launched, which still continues with pride on the waters to the delight of its visitors.
