We offer to your attention two posts published on the page of Marina Regula on Facebook, or Story that miracles do happen!
First post. Marina Gigolo is with Vadim K. and 5 in Casablanca. 26 March at 17:20 •
Six days at sea we were full of hope to come in this morning to Casablanca for fuel and water and to rest at least overnight.
Pro quarantine all know, but to leave the ship, no one was going, she just wanted to refuel and just sleep it off.
But there it was:)
We were greeted by a Moroccan military ship, the dialogue with him was incredible:
– Your ship, the purpose of the visit?
Catamaran Bali Linda, rest, go to Mallorca, you only want to refuel.
– In connection with the coronavirus, all ports are closed, can not go.
Even to refuel? Then we leave?
– Go 4 miles from shore and wait for the escort vessel.
We marveled at the logic of the military to get away, but to wait for an escort. The word right has given hope, support, from him had smelled the land and the shore.
But all in vain. We are slowly but surely removed in the direction of Gibraltar and the Moroccan military us neatly back accompany. If only to the coast we turned:)

Post the second. Marina Gigolo Vadim K. and 5. 22.
After a failed sunset in Casablanca, coastguard drove us 4 miles from shore.
30 minutes later we were approached by a Corvette of the Royal Navy of Morocco. Set the course and speed.
Asked about the status of crew, provisions, fuel. Formed parallel course and accompanied us 2 days to Gibraltar.
Go to the link every hour, interested in the condition of the crew, PEP showed various signs of neglect, protecting the group from going near the courts.
Yesterday evening requested information on the fuel capacity and the remains diesel. And then the emotion and joy of the crew knew no bounds.
Catamaran Linda, prepare a “dingy” and come to our Board for loading fuel. We have prepared for you 550 litres of diesel, this should fill your tanks “full”.
The Royal Navy of Morocco – Love.
Go to the Mediterranean sea from the North Atlantic through the Strait of Gibraltar.
Spirits, the crew in good spirits. With sympathy we read the posts and comments of all those who against their will were deprived of freedom of movement and locked in the apartments. Hold on, we are with you!
PS: At the time of exit from the Canary Islands on 15 March there are no restrictions from the authorities was received. The way we conducted by the police, having to go to the store and get provisions.
At the moment, more than 900 liters of fuel, provisions to feed a small town under siege for over a month. Most of the way – more than 800 miles – has already been passed. We go to Majorca in the home Marina, keeping in touch with them.adventurecatamaranlinda
