The Tara team has been hard at work for a long time preparing to participate in the upcoming 2015 Paris Climate conference (COP21). To pass under the bridges of the Seine, Tara’s masts had to be taken down. Then for 3 days, the schooner went up the river. At quay, the masts were re-installed to get Tara ready for her opening to the public on Saturday, November 14. The Tara “Ocean & Climate” Pavilion will open on November 13. Discover this impressive feat and the hoisting maneuvers involved in video. The research schooner will be docked near the Pont Alexandre III until December 18.
