The general public is invited to hop aboard IFREMER’s research vessel, the Pourquoi pas? on Sunday, 28 August. For €2 (free for children under 12), visitors can discover the state-of-the-art technologies used for marine research or deep-sea exploration and meet staff from Genavir, the organiser of the event. In 2010, this event collected €2500 for two charities sponsored by Jean-Paul Hellequin, president of the “Association du Remorquage” a club of active and retired maritime professionals.
