Bangladesh made boat reaches France

“Unsinkable eco-friendly” boat TARA TARI made of jute fibre has reached the coast of La Ciotat, South of France today (Wednesday). The historic solidarity voyage came to an end. The 8 months long grueling sail on a made in Bangladesh “journey by boat” from river Banshi, Savar, Bangladesh to south of France is a indeed a challenge.

The mission of the sail was to highlight the problems facing Bangladeshi fishermen, for whom the sea is becoming increasingly dangerous due to the global warming.

The two-member sailors led by French born Corentin de Chatelperron, 26 deserves pat on their back!
