In early June 2019, the expedition received the official approval of the Spanish Government Commission in charge of the events, to celebrate the first round-the-world voyage. The expedition is now part of the programme of festivities being held to mark the 500th anniversary of the return of Magellan’s expedition.
The event will be celebrated not only in Seville but also nationally within Spain and even internationally from this year until 2022. This will bring gratifying recognition for The Ocean Mapping Expedition, which can now proudly display the official logo for the celebrations in its communication media.
