The Cultural Village Foundation – Katara announced the opening of registration for the ‘Fath Al Khair 4’ marine voyage, which will set this time from Istanbul, Turkey until end of June 2019.
The voyage, now on its fourth edition, is organised by Katara. It is expected to reach Tunisia after landing in several harbours in Europe and North Africa – in Greece, Albania, Croatia, Italy, France, Spain, Morocco and Algeria.
The Fath Al Khair voyage aims to revive the old maritime traditions of Qatari sailors by cruising around the world using traditional dhows and ancient maritime tools, which also gives the young generations an exposure on their ancestors’ marine lifestyle.
After the first successful voyage of Fath Al Khair in 2013, captained by Nokhaza Hassan Al Kaabi and which cruised around the Gulf states, Katara decided to launch the second and third editions, all successful and fruitful. The Katara Beach administration said all candidates for the Fath Al Khair 4 voyage must be physically-fit.
