MURMANSK, September 16. /TASS/. China’s Qingdao yacht carrying the first-ever Russian-Chinese crew has set a new record for sailboats covering the Northern Sea Route in just 12 days, a journey sponsors told TASS on Wednesday.
"The previous record of 14 days was set by the Scorpius yacht in 2012," a spokesman for the Chistye Morya environmental foundation said.
The expedition set off from Russia’s north-western port of Murmansk on September 3 and arrived at Providence Bay in the southern coast of the Chukchi Peninsula of northeastern Siberia earlier on Wednesday.
The travelers for the first time sailed without starting the engine in the area of 82 degrees North, while the other yachts’ usual route lies along Russia’s Arctic coast.
The final destination of the international crew, also consisting of French and German sailors, is China’s Qingdao — the largest port city on the Yellow Sea.
The 97 feet trimaran Qingdao is a renamed French-built yacht IDEC.
The Northern Sea Route is a shipping lane of 5,610 kilometers from the Kara Sea to the Pacific Ocean.
