The Jolie Brise Collection
The world famous Jolie Brise
Jolie Brise, arguably one of the most famous tall ships in the world, has been sailed and maintained by pupils from Dauntsey's School for 40 years.
Named after France’s equivalent of the Beaufort scale force five wind, Jolie Brise was designed by Paumelle and launched at Le Havre in 1913. She was the penultimate Gaff Cutter in the Pilot Service before the change from sail to steam and the last boat to carry the Royal Mail under sail. She has won the Fastnet Race three times, including the first race in 1925 and more recently with Dauntsey’s pupils on board she has been overall winner of the Tall Ships Races four times.
Skipper to Jolie Brise, Toby Marris, is one of Oarsome Chance's Patrons and Canvas Works is now upcycling Jolie Brise's signature, terracotta coloured 'tan bark' sails, into fantastic special edition products.
Each and every Jolie Brise product is one of a kind – authentic and unique.
Changing lives - every purchase from Canvas Works helps Oarsome Chance to change the lives of young people who have had a tough start in life. This valuable social impact is why Toby chose to become a patron for Oarsome Chance.
