Kruzenshtern in Las Palmas
During the period from April 1 to April 4, the sailing training ship Kruzenshtern was staying at the port of Las Palmas. As soon as mobile connection appeared, the crew and cadets were able to contact their near and dear ones. For the sake of safety any shore leaves were strictly prohibited.
The next day, food supplies and drinking water were loaded. Due to the epidemiological situation, maximum precautions were taken for the entire crew. Each package was treated with a special antibacterial liquid. Masks and gloves were worn by each participant of the operation.
Today, the vessel is leaving Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain). She is heading for the Russian port of Novorossiysk.
Due to quarantine measures taken in a number of countries against the spread of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, calls to the ports of Casablanca (Morocco) and Haifa (Israel) were excluded from the route of the Kruzenshtern.
