VLADIVOSTOK, September 4 (Itar-Tass) - The icebreaker "Admiral Makarov" rescued the crew of the Frecnh catamaran Babuska (granny) in the Arctic Ocean on the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, at 04:45, Vladivostok time. The icebreaker with those rescued on board then headed for the Chukotka port of Pevek and is planning to arrive there on September 6, the Far Eastern shipping company reported.
Specialsits at the State sea rescue coordinating center received a message by telephone on August 31 from their colleagues from France that a catamaran with a two-member crew was nipped in ice.
The catamaran was on its way from Alaska to Iceland across the Arctic Ocean and stuck fast in ice. The crew issued a distress signal in the belief that they would not be able to reach the shore before their three-week stock of food available on board would peter out.
