Here is the message the user Katerina Larina today posted on the page “Travel on the yacht, travel, sailors, and Captains” on Facebook:
At 3am 28.07.2019 around the island of Fuerteventura (Canary Islands) on the approach to the Marina of Caleta de fuste city of yachts “Star” stalled the engine and threw it on the rocks. A team of eight people(all from St. Petersburg) were not affected.
Boat with no leaks. There are dents on the body. The case of iron. Damaged steering pen. The mast is intact. A yacht built in 1935. Weight of 22 tons.
In 2018, the yacht came from St. Petersburg on 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 crew are looking to remove the boat from the rocks. Yet responded to the Marina Rubicon (Lanzarote) and Las Palmas (Gran Canaria), but a final agreement yet.
The boat gets rolling wave on the rocks, and as soon as possible to pull it off the rocks.
Marine rescue service ( sorry if not correct it is called) and Marina refused to pull the boat, because I do not want to take responsibility for any damage to the yacht during the tow and was told to contact private companies.
IF ANYONE HAS CONTACTS OR PRIVATE TUG BOATS, PLEASE SHARE!!!!
