JOUR DE FETE
JOUR DE FÊTE was built as FALCON in 1930 at the renowned yard of George Lawley and Sons, South Boston, to designs by the great Frank Paine, long -time associate of Starling Burgess, and one of the main stays of E. Coast yacht designing. Her name was later changed to HAYDAY, and then later back to FALCON.
Then FALCON was completely re-built by the renowned classic yacht restorer John Anderson, an English shipwright base in Maine, USA, finishing the job in 2007. It was when she was purchased by the current owner and imported into France in 2011 that FALCON became JOUR DE FÊTE. Since then, she has competed very successfully in the Mediterranean regatta circuit, earning an enviable reputation, not only for an ability to win races, but also for her outstanding condition and beauty.
