From 1901 to 1956, the "Benoit Champy" made numerous trips at sea to assist boats in diffculty. Designed to operate in the roughest seas, this 10.10-metre long "sail-and-row" canoe, armed by 12 men, is unsinkable, self-righting and self-draining. 12 horses were needed to launch it. Nowadays, the lifeboat is classified as a Historic Monument and is scrupulously maintained by the association of the Red Pompons.
