Turkey & old boats

Some people have built a replica of a 600 B.C boat: a "bireme" called KYBELE. They will leave from the Foça village (Phocée or Phocea in ancient times) in Turkey. The Phoceans are the people who funded Marseilles in France. The people doing the trip are supposed to arrive in Marseilles July 1st, the weather permitting. After that they will go to Paris sailing and rowing along 3 main rivers.
