British Yachtsman Detained
06.28.2004 13:58

yacht Corney Anthony George, 65, had been intending to sail his yacht "The Mohican" to the shore of the United States along the Northern Arctic Sea Route.

However, the yachtsman became concerned he would get stuck in the sea ice and decided to drop his plans and sail instead through Arkhangelsk and the White Sea-Baltic Canal to St. Petersburg, the report said.

He failed to notify the Russian authorities of his plans and was detained and escorted to Arkhangelsk.

"Bearing in mind that the transgression was due to force majeure circumstances, it has been decided not to punish the yacht skipper severely," Itar-Tass quoted Colonel-Major Vladimir Beryozkin, of the Arctic Border Serviceas saying.

"He will be able to continue his interrupted voyage on Monday upon paying a fine for the transgression," Beryozkin said.
