Patrick has a large collection of classic rowing boats, most of them gathered at his house on the Port-Rhu, in Douarnenez, Brittany, within a stone’s throw of the Boat museum. The museum recently hosted an exhibition featuring 3 of his boats, two of which are listed as French national heritage, and a number of documents and pictures from his collection. He is also interested in classic yachts, and owns “Germaine”, an 1882 Ben Nicholson built 45ft yawl, currently undergoing a total rebuild at the International Boatbuilding College in Lowestoft.
