The first Breton crabber, the Aventurier, arrived in the Isles of Scilly in the Spring of 1902. For most of the 20th. century, the Breton fishermen and their colourful boats were regular visitors to Cornwall, anchoring each evening at the Lizard, Newlyn, St. Mary’s, St. Ives, Newquay and Padstow where they made many friends.
They sailed to Cornwall from Camaret, Audierne, le Conquet, Douarnez, Roscoff and Paimpol. This is their story comprehensively illustrated with black and white photographs and diagrams.
AUTHOR John McWilliams
John McWilliams was born in 1943 into an old St. Ives family. He became a teacher and this is his second book about St. Ives. As a young man he sailed for several years with the Breton fishermen and still visits them annually.
