The festival includes various entertainment andsport activities including beach soccer, sail boatshow, Jet Ski race, basketball and volleyball,artistic evenings, fashion shows and electing the festival beauty queen and launching the construction of a Phoenician ship.It was the Phoenician ship, of course, which caught my eye. I can't find any additional information about it, though. This makes me think of the construction and many sailing adventures of the Good Ship Phoenicia, but that was a very ambitious undertaking and so far I see no indication that the current project is on the same scale.
