The adventure takes us on the tracks of the legendary corsairs and pirates thanks to a 18th century extraordinary well-preserved privateer ship.
February 1714, a storm is raging in the Saint-Malo's bay: as it tries to escape the English warships, the "saint John the Baptist", goes down wih all hands. In 1995, two amateur divers came face to face with a few antique cannons lying by less than ten meters of water. The wreck was soon identified as a 18th century extraordinary well-preserved privateer ship. The adventure takes us on the tracks of the legendary corsairs and pirates. This story is told by three experts: Michel l'Hour, Damien Sanders and Jerzy Gavronsky, three well-known experts on underwater archaeology and modern wrecks.
