Here is the news appeared on the pages of “300 days around the world with Igor Zaretsky” on Facebook:
“This is the hardest decision of my life, – said Igor Zaretsky, calling on a satellite phone to the coast team. – I decided to go to first Australian port to clear the body from the undergrowth and repair the rigging”.
Igor goes into the category of Chichester. Not after clean the body, he almost can’t move forward, losing up to 30-40 % speed. And it would be wrong not to take a stop, at the same time to restore battered the stays and other ropes.
The voice of Igor sounded very cheerful, focused. It is clear that it is bitter, but quite meaningful and reasonable solution. There is still the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and slightly more than 50% of the way.
