The crew of the Russian Ocean Way trimaran spent the entire day of July 18 repairing the vessel, according to a report from the Coastal Center crew.
“It turned out that we had a problem with the torsions, elements of the trimaran’s structure. Three of 18 torsions were broken at the welding seams, and we had to re-weld them,” said the head of the expedition, Evgeny Kovalevsky.
To solve the problem the crew was helped by the inhabitants of Malmö, the head of the society SKRUV Niklas Bennemark and Marina Mihackaya, who had previously organized a meeting with the crew on July 17. The activists found a specialist, Stefan Noorden, who helped to carry out the necessary welding work completely free of charge, and now the crew is ready to sail further on the Baltic Sea.
Today, July 19, from early morning is checking the wiring and preparing for departure from Malmö. By the evening the expedition plans to depart in the direction of Kiel (Germany).
Eugene Kovalevsky and Stanislav Berezkin report operational information to the Coastal Center.
