Kartesh meets Nerpa Expedition
On the night of July 15, a LMSU Marine research center group carried out underwater fauna research on the Novaya Zemlya shores. Our colleagues – the Nerpa Expedition – appeared to lay anchor nearby. We departed to their location to exchange salutations and wish them a successful expedition, but unfortunately, as we approached their yacht, the expeditionary group was taking repose. We decided against waking our colleagues up and returned to Kartesh. We still had to say our goodbyes to Novaya Zemlya.
