Vasily Vasilyevich Vereshchagin (1842-1904) died during the Russo-японской war in 1904. The battleship "Petropavlovsk", where he worked was blown up by an enemy mine and sank in the Yellow sea

In the tragedy were killed and an outstanding Vice-адмирал Stepan Osipovich Makarov (1848-1904). The place of death "Petropavlovsk" it is known. Flagship was trapped and sunk near Port-Артура (now the Chinese city of Dalian) at a depth of about 50 meters. The Japanese surveyed the armored ship in 1913 with the help of available on that day, imperfect technical facilities: looking for values and in parallel raised the remains of several crew members.

it is Known that the destruction of the "Petropavlovsk" was very large: a mine explosion caused the detonation of ammunition the gun in the bow. The bridge was also badly damaged, killed nearly all the officers. And very quickly the ship broke in two and sank. Killed more than 600 people, only 80 members of the crew were rescued from the water. In addition, there is a theory that the "Petropavlovsk" is not a place of death anymore. The 2011 expedition found only a fragment of the body. It is believed that the Japanese secretly disposed of the deceased construction of the battleship in 1943. However, the traveler Fyodor Konyukhov is planning to organize a dive to the lost ship and recover the remains of the famous compatriots. If successful, the search operation the ashes of Admiral Stepan Makarov proposed to rebury in a new built Church, the Ministry of defense in Moscow. Probably talking about the temple, under construction near Patriot Park at the Minsk highway.

As sung in the famous song "Closing the circle" we are the boat "AKROS" closes the circle with a length of 200 kilometers. At this moment traversed its course, we pass the point where it was 17 February at 17:00 Moscow time. 6 days of lost time, in the truest sense of the words thrown to the wind. The extra 200 miles. A week ago to Cape horn there were 2 150 miles, and now 2 of 170 miles, i.e. after almost 200 km, we were dropped at 36 km ago. Never, in the history of my sailing trips and trips to the rowing boats, I have not been in the same situation. Yes, there was the oncoming storm, lost day — else, but to 6 days, and a single meter has not moved yet. However, I've never been in the southern ocean on a rowing boat, but to accept this challenge very hard. In a big city people are nervous when standing in traffic and instead of the usual hour, reach the destination in 2 hours. I thought that by 23 February, across 120 degrees West longitude to Cape horn will be less than 2000 miles, but not met my expectations. I will remember this loop at point Nemo. Keeps me of the ocean in this pole of inaccessibility, does not break away and start to move closer to the coast of Chile. So God took me from what-то more dangerous, held for almost a week in one place. In Russia today is a holiday — the defender of the Fatherland day. Congratulations to our hosts and all involved. To defend the Fatherland is a noble thing. #Fedorchenko #rowing #akrosrowingboat #fedorkonyukhov #rowingboat
