Why the "Why not"?

"The Why not?" is a jersey created in memory of JB Charcot, a great French explorer and also a school rugby pioneer.

Passionate about the sea, JB Charcot built his first boat, « The why not 1 », at only 26 yrs old. At 33, the young medcin graduate had also won 2 silver Olympic medals for sailing at the 1900 Olympics.   On the rugby side,  at 28 yrs. old, he founded the Olympique, nicknamed the "O" with a few players from the Racing team… The "O" became French champions a year later with this white jersey with an "O" embroidered on it and surrounded by the red wings of a wallkyries !  After his sporting successes, Charcot decided to turn his talents towards ocean exploration which led him to the artic regions. The 16th September 1936, after 12 hours of storms «  The why not 4 "  sank in the freezing waters off Iceland. The Captain of the "Why not 4 " - ex rugby captain became a legend.
