This short Seatrekking excursion was an opportunity to welcome a maximum of five (5) novices in the practice of seatrekking while discovering the stretch of coastline from Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer to Bandol over two nights with an overnight in the open. Participants were collecting litter along the course using nets and using the floating bag for portage. The trash then was disposed  properly, plastic bottles were handed over to the association YoYo. The project also included the testing of a battery powered instrumented buoy for measuring water quality, provided by INIJUS.
