Miniboat Canaris was created by a French school in the Canary Islands. French revolutionary warship L’Hermione launched Canaris. Canaris sailed along the African coast before she stopped transmitting. After several months without a GPS fix, she started reporting again in late December 2015 in a neighborhood east of Dakar, Senegal.
Then in June 2016 she was located in a fisherman’s house as a decorative table. Once the GPS is confirmed, we are hoping the fisherman who have been taking such great care of her can set her back in the ocean to continue her educational voyage.
