A photo of Patrice LargeHaving worked as a Physical Therapist in the fashionable, Saint-Germain des Prés area of Paris, Patrice went on to live in the United States, where he became deeply involved in his two passions : painting and sailing.

In 1995, whilst in San Francisco, Patrice bought Grisette a 1900 English pilot-boat from The North Sea with the idea of returning her to her original waters.

Patrice now lives on his sailboat in Sicily where he paints, navigates and collaborates with Culture Sailing.
