The Hermione is a 47-metre-high, 65-metre-long replica of the frigate that left French waters in 1780, taking the young Marquis de Lafayette to America where he would help George Washington defeat the British in the War of Independence. After a year of sailing across the Atlantic, the Hermione has been touring parts of the Mediterranean. Her crew is made up of volunteers from 34 different countries, who have learned the values of discipline and working as a team. Our reporters went aboard.
