      Our stopover in the south unfolded under the sun and a bit of wind – Mistral- and our village held on tight, while the vessel recharged its batteries next to the Mucem.

      During our stay, we welcomed Renaud Muselier, pre of the PACA Region, along with numerous visitors from Marseille and its surroundings, and even from Spain and Italy!

      We also went into the Parc National des Calanques to meet with Seaboost Artificial Reefs, a start-up installing innovative designs, thanks to biomimicry, of artificial reefs, allowing the return of fauna and flora to deserted ecosystems. Stay tuned to get more information and a video on this innovation on our website.
