Another Santi Expedition to Find the Eagle sets off

Already on 29 July another SANTI expedition will set off to find the legendary wreck of ORP “Orzeł”. This year’s search will focus on the never-before-explored “A3” area, in the North Sea, and will test another hypothesis regarding the sinking of the Polish ship.

The team members have been preparing for the expedition for a long time. In fact, their activities are focused on verifying successive elements, which they hope will form a whole and lead to solving the mystery of the sinking of the “Eagle”. The area “A3” was chosen as this year’s search area, which is related to the hypothesis that ORP “Orzeł” could have sunk in its first days after sailing. This may be supported by the fact that the Polish vessel did not contact the base in Rosyth even once during her last patrol. This fact may be explained by two hypotheses – either the radio station was broken, which made contact impossible, or the ship was sunk at the beginning of the patrol.

[blockquote style=”2″]”So far we have focused on verifying the “Friendly Fire” hypothesis, according to which the “Eagle” may have been accidentally sunk by the English. The area related to this hypothesis we have already surveyed 4 times, hence this time we decided to focus on new activities, we believe it will be revealing.” – comments Tomasz Stachura expedition leader [/blockquote].

Seven members of the team and a film crew of three will set off from Gdynia, early in the morning of Monday 29 July, towards Thyboron, Denmark, where the ship “NEMO A” is waiting for them. The vessel will be equipped with specialist hydrographic equipment, which will be transported from Gdynia for the expedition.

[blockquote style=”2″]”Traditionally we bring with us the best quality research equipment. In technical terms, we are prepared at the highest level” – adds Dr Benedict Hac, head of the hydrographic team [/blockquote].

The expected duration of the expedition is two weeks. Of course, much depends on weather factors, which at the moment should not introduce perturbations to the plan.

[blockquote style=”2″]”I am quietly hoping that this time we will be able to discover the “Eagle”, but as I have said many times before, we keep looking until we succeed,” Tomasz Stachura concludes [/blockquote].
