Par les ports de Marseille, mais le plus facile est celui de Pointe Rouge où les mises à l'eau sont vastes ( une intérieur près des magasins qui est protégée du vent et de la houle, l'autre extérieur plus exposée au ressac)
Le parking de la mise à l'eau extérieure est immense et pour le moment gratuit!!
Il est possible de partir de la mise à l'eau du Vieux Port côté Fort Saint Nicolas, mais il y a peu de places et il faut arriver très tôt pour espérer trouver une place de stationnement

Voilier en fer il coule le 19 juin 1893 alors qu'il était en remorque
Ce voilier n'a pas de moteur Il faisait 70m de long sur 10m de large
Le pont en bois a disparu ne reste que les membrures métalliques
De gros rochers ont été balancé sur l'épave quel dommage!!!
La visibilité n'est pas bonne dans ce secteur à cause des alluvions du Rhône!
Il est possible de plonger sur cette épave par Mistral soutenu la mer n'a pas eu le temps de se former mais il faut laisser une sécurité efficace en surface!!
Faune et flore très riche pour les biologistes!
