On September 15, as in the previous year, the joint activity between the SAS Program (http://www.semesteratsea.org/), the BC Agency company and the E.U. Mediterrani was made. The SAS Program offers the possibility to university students from the USA, to take a knowledge trip by boat, with a duration of 4 to 5 months, receiving training on board and carrying out activities in each of the ports where they dock.
