Seafaring Sunday: Birth of a Legend
June 10, 1673: Rene Duguay-Trovin is born in Saint-Malo, France. Following a career path that almost exactly mirrored Jean Bart, Duguay-Trovin would start out as a successful privateer and graduate to a brilliant naval career. In the process, he would take upward of 320 prizes.
