Off the coast of Australia in the Pacific Ocean, sharks attack a round-the-world expedition where the Russians are. This was announced on Wednesday, September 6, by Russian Interfax with reference to Yulia Kalyuzhna, Executive Director of the Tomsk Regional Branch of the Russian Geographical Society.

According to him, sharks attacked the Russian Ocean Way – TION catamaran in the Coral Sea, where members of the round-the-world expedition of the Tomsk Branch of the Russian Geographical Society were moving. In the manner of Russian circumnavigators.

After the shark attack, the catamaran began to sink. The crew gave an SOS signal in time. The Australian Directorate of Safety responded to assist. There were three people on board the catamaran: the leader of the expedition, Evgeny Kovalevsky, the captain of the trimaran, Stanislav Berezkin, and a Frenchman named Vincent. None of them were injured in the incident.

The catamaran was lost – it sank into the sea. Despite the loss of the ship, the expedition will continue with Kovalevsky and Berezkin. The Frenchman will remain in Australia.

In March, the sailing inflatable trimaran Russian Ocean Way left Concepción Bay and headed northwest to Easter Island across the Pacific Ocean. Kovalevsky, Berezkin and the sailor Yegor Muzyleev were on board with the dog Pasoka.

On March 16, the rudder tore, the ship lost control, as weather conditions worsened. The crew gave an SOS signal, the expedition members were rescued by a cargo ship flying the flag of Panama. An unmanned trimaran was tied to the ship, but it tore apart and sank with all the equipment and property.

After that, Kovalevsky and Berezkin arrived at Easter Island, where they examined the catamaran of Russian Dmitry Trubitsyn, on which he sailed to the island from America eight years ago. The ship received a new name – Russian Ocean Way – TION. The travelers bought equipment and began to prepare for the continuation of the expedition.

The crew includes Russian Andrey Cherepanov, as well as Chilean divers and underwater photographer Caleb Hara Garate. On April 25, travelers from around the world entered the Pacific Ocean aboard a new ship. Later, Cherepanov and the Chilean left the expedition, but Vincent joined them.
