Help is needed!
Here is the message that the user Katerina Larina has posted today on the page "Traveling on a yacht, fellow travelers, sailors and Captains" on Facebook:
At 3 am on 07/28/2019 near the island of Fuerteventura (Canary Islands), on the approach to the marina of the city of Caleta de fuste, the yacht Zvezda stalled the engine and threw it on the stones. A team of eight people (all from St. Petersburg) did not suffer.
Yacht without a leak. There are dents on the body. Iron case. Damaged steering feather. Masts are intact. The yacht was built in 1935. Weight 22 tons.
In 2018, the yacht left St. Petersburg for a long voyage. The yacht passed the Baltic, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Atlantic to Madeira, the Canary Islands (La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura).
At the moment, the captain and the team are looking for an opportunity to remove the boat from the rocks. Marina Rubicon (Lanzarotte) and Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) have responded so far, but there is no final agreement yet.
The yacht hits the stones with a knurling wave, and you need to pull it off the bank as soon as possible.
The maritime rescue service (sorry, if I don’t call it correctly) and the marina refused to pull out the yacht, because they do not want to take responsibility for possible damage to the yacht during towing and told to contact private companies.
IF SOMEONE HAS A CONTACT OF A PRIVATE TUG TURN OR A BOAT, SHARE PLEASE !!!!
