Ship's log

On the weekend of November 12-13, 2016, Fleur de Passion made its entry into Moreton Bay and is about to enter the Brisbane River to go up to the capital of the State of Queensland. On Monday, 14 November, after a final anchorage away from the commercial routes of many merchant ships, the yacht will be moored at the customs pontoons at the entrance of the river, almost under the immense Gateway Bridge. There, in its brownish waters, it will fulfil the formalities of entry into Australia. During the week, it will sail up to the city centre where festivities will take place not only to mark the arrival in Australia and the end of the Pacific crossing, begun seven months earlier in Chile, but also the demi tour of the world since the departure of the expedition from Seville in April 2015.
