September 28, 2013 is a milestone in the history of Hungarian shipping. On the stage set up in the crowded Place d’Armes in Toulon (France), the crew of the Hungarian sail training yacht S/Y “Femme Fatale” took over the prize for the winner of the first stage of the Lycamobile Mediterranean Tall Ships Regatta! For the first time, a Hungarian boat won in the 57-year history of tall ships races, and Femme Fatale was the first Hungarian participant!
Among the two-, three-, and four-mast huge tall ships the 47-foot-long Femme Fatale won the C-Class (modern sailing boats without a spinnaker), and in the middle of the overall results list for the four boat classes, he finished in sixteenth place.
The attention of the organizers of the competition and the press was attracted by other things. The S.A.L.T. Hungary was able to participate in the “Sail Training Against Cancer” research program with three Hungarian young people recovering from cancer, supported by international bursaries and domestic companies, as well as individuals.
