The 15th Yachts du coeur will take place in Cannes Vieux Port, the 23rd of April 2016 

Sponsored by the city of Cannes & the Chamber of Commerce and industry, Eco-Mer organizes les Yachts du Coeur since 2010. Our 15th Yachts du Coeur will take place in Cannes, Vieux Port the 23/04/2016 from 9.30am to 5.30pm.

Do something positive for people and the environment. Give food surpluses from yachts to the poor and help the YACHTS DU COEUR. We give food to Food Banks.

Sponsored by the city of Cannes & the Chamber of Commerce and industry, Eco-Mer organizes les Yachts du Coeur since 2010.
Our 15th Yachts du Coeur will take place in the Vieux Port de Cannes on the 23rd of April 2016 at 11am and Cannes Mayor, M. David Lisnard, will launch a daily superyacht anti-wastage food collections to the benefit of the Yachts du Coeur at this event. Our 16th Yachts du Coeur will then close the Yachting season in Cannes, Port Canto, on the 19th of September 2016.

The YACHTS DU COEUR fights hunger and protects the environment by supporting and strengthening Food Banks. Since 2010, we’ve collected 19.2 tons of food from superyachts’ seafarers in and around Cannes, on the French Riviera. The equivalent of 38400 meals were collected and handed out to Food Banks who re-distributed it to 105 specialized associations to feed over 25000 people locally. That’s around 172000€ of food at 5€ per meal that did not go to landfill.
