  • <h2>Flags and Maritime Flags of Vagnon</h2> <p style="text-align:justify;">Flapping in the wind, the flags erected at the top of the masts of ships are visible signals at sea or in ports. On land, the flags answer them on the pediments of port buildings or semaphores. Beyond their apparent simplicity, both are messengers of a fertile history, one that traces the great conquests, revolutions, wars and sporting events over the centuries. This book is an invitation to discover the shapes, motifs and meanings of nearly 400 magnificent banners which, although they may seem familiar, are often unknown to us.</p> <h2 style="text-align:justify;">Details about "Flags and flags"</h2>

  • <h2 class="product_title entry-title">Races of legend : confidences and logs</h2> <p style="text-align:justify;"><span>The boats evolve, the men become more professional, but the magic remains. Offshore racing still fascinates, because it comes close to an almost intimate question: what to do, alone, in the middle of the immensity? It intrigues, because women and men give everything in a hostile environment, to defy the elements and to surpass themselves. With the globe as their playground, the skippers have reduced their times, pushed the limits of what is possible and learned to fly. A constant challenge, based on the races that the sailors have made mythical. In this book, documented and illustrated with superb photos of these fabulous races, the skippers reveal themselves in intimate and exclusive interviews. Through the most prestigious competitions and incredible records, these are the stories of extraordinary men and women that this book invites us to discover.</span></p> <h2 style="text-align:justify;">More information on Sailing - Races of Legends at Editions Amphora</h2>
