FCA members are invited to a press conference by the Geneva-based Fondation Pacifique on the Ocean Mapping Expedition of the 33m-long Swiss Ketch Fleur de Passion.

This unique 4-year journey (2015-2019) around the world from Seville to Seville combines science, education and culture to map human impact on the oceans and raise awareness about sustainable development issues in the wake of Ferdinand Magellan some 500 years after the first ever circumnavigation.

Coming from Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines, the 33m-long and tallest sailboat under Swiss flag Fleur de Passion (Flower of Passion), a former WWII German minesweeper turned into a sailing boat, will stop in Singapore from 13 to 25 March 2018 before heading further towards Jakarta, Madagascar, Mozambique and South Africa where she is expected to arrive in Durban then Cape Town by the end of the year.

The press conference will be followed by a visit and lunch on board Fleur de Passion.
