Christening of the sailboat "Europe"

97 views

The sailboat "Europe" was christened in Brussels by Claude Cheysson, French Minister for External Relations and President in office of the Council, in the presence of numerous European political dignitaries. It's the "Sail for Europe" organisation that will man this 11-metre sloop in the "Tour de France à la voile" yachting race. This non-profit organisation, founded in 1976, set out to use a team sport to raise awareness among the public about building Europe. The organisation did this by sailing the yacht "Treaty of Rome" in the world races of 1977-78 and 1981-82.
