The sailing ship "Europe" was named in Brussels by Claude Cheysson, French Minister for External Relations and President in office of the Council, in the presence of numerous European politicians. The "Sail for Europe" association equipped this 11 metre long sloop in the Tour of France by boat. This non profit organisation, created in 1976, aims to increase public awareness of the construction of Europe through a team sport. The sailing ship "Treaty of Rome" also participated in its round the world trips in 1977-79 and 1981-82.
