Ship's log

Let's not be afraid of this paradox, it is now summer in Australia, and it is very hot in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland. However, this is the period when Fleur de Passion "hibernates", as it was completely unrigged and prepared for the shipyard in the region where it will receive its annual maintenance in a few weeks time. The sailboat will then come out of the water - for the first time since its departure of Seville in April 2015, that is to say nineteen months ago - thanks to a crane of a certain size to hoist its 100 tons dry. But for now, it is the occasion of some unusual photos of Fleur de Passion with bare poles at wharf A in Rivergate Marina, downstream of the city.
