Here in New York City on October 14, 2014,, as the Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America (FOH-LA) group prepares to welcome 600 guests on board the U.S.S. Intrepid for its long-planned Gala tonight, we are extremely proud that our expert sailor and FOH-LA Committee Member Marc Jensen is in Bordeaux, France on board the Hermione, participating as a crew member during the frigate’s sea trials this autumn.
With the Hermione’s visit to Bordeaux assisted by Toby Wolf, U.S. Consul, and facilitated along with many distinguished regional and civic leaders in and around Bordeaux, the Hermione has made a triumphal visit to this famous port city on the Garonne River in southwest France, attracting thousands of visitors, tourists and supporters.
