The Belem; French Tall Ship Visits Dublin

The Belem, a magnificent three-masted barque and last remaining French tall ship from the 19th century, will be circumnavigating Ireland this year, offering the ship an opportunity to return to the waters she once knew very well in the days she was named Fantôme II, and her owner was no other than… Sir Arthur Ernest Guinness! The Belem will dock in Dublin for two days before sailing on to Galway and Cork.

A major piece of Europe’s maritime history
Built in Nantes in 1896, this merchant sailing vessel sailed the seas between France and the coasts of South America and the West Indies for many years. Purchased by the Duke of Westminster in 1914, she was converted into a luxury yacht. In 1921, she was sold to Sir Arthur Ernest Guinness, vice chairman of Guinness, an engineer and enthusiastic sailor, who renamed the ship Fantôme II and also traveled with her on a great many voyages, notably a world cruise in 1923 and 1924. After the 2nd World War, the three-master sailed under the Italian flag, and trained the orphans of the Italian navy. In 1979, she returned to French ownership thanks to Groupe Caisse d’Epargne, who entrusted her to the Fondation Belem which has been providing her with support for almost 30 years.

The stopover in Dublin
The Belem is docking in the Irish capital for a two-day stopover. A large number of events have been planned for this exceptional visit and have been organized with the support of Dublin Tourism.

This is a fitting tribute to Sir Arthur Ernest Guinness. His life and the links he maintained with his favorite ship, Fantôme II, have been retraced by the Foundation, which is currently carrying out extensive research on the Belem. (Any information from the public on this subject would be greatly welcomed.)

The Belem which will be moored at Sir John Rogersons Quay will be open to the public on Saturday, July 28.

On Friday, July 27, exciting new plans to transport wine from the South of France to Ireland will be announced. The Belem and Compagnie de Transport Maritime à la Voile (CTMV) will host a gala reception for Irish Wine importers which will include a special wine tasting on board the ship. New plans to export wine from the South of France to Ireland in an environmentally safe way by sea will be announced. This new initiative which will commence at the end of 2008 is being supported by the Fondation Belem.


Bien amicalement,
