On 21st March 1780, The young Marques de La Fayette embarked on the Hermione. Setting sail for the America to fight alongside the American insurgents in the struggle for their independence. Two years earlier at the Rochefort Arsenal in a building close to the Corderie Royale, work had begun on the Hermione, a light 12 pounder frigate, over 65 metres long. Weighing in a more than 1,200 tonnes, with a sail surface of over 1,500 m2 spread on three masts. The Hermione was built from plans drawn up by the engineer-shipbuilder Chevillard l'Aine. In 1997 under the auspices of the Hermione - La Fayette association, work got underway at the same site on the reconstruction of La Fayette's famous frigate.
