For over three months, the sailors prepared Tara at the Keroman shipyard in Lorient. Between the refurbishment of the engine room for the installation of the new engines, the new paintings, the installation of the new lab or the cooling system, the schooner Tara is ready for a new adventure into the warm waters of the Pacific.

Starting May 28 in Lorient (FR), the new #TaraPacific expedition will spend more than two years studying the biodiversity of coral reefs facing climate change.
