SANTI Finding the Eagle – V expedition starts!

It is already certain, at the end of September the expedition “SANTI Odnaleźć Orła” will set off for the fifth time with the aim of finding the wreck of the submarine ORP “Orzeł”. This year’s search will focus on the area located 100 miles from Scotland and 200 miles from the coast of Denmark and will be continued as part of the verification of the so-called “friendly fire” hypothesis according to which on June 3, 1940, the ship fell victim to a fratricidal attack by British aviation.

This time the team will start the expedition from the coast of Denmark for the first time. It is not without significance that the members of the team managed to reach and establish contacts with Danish fishermen, who are the most active group in the North Sea. Their knowledge, may prove to be significant in the search in the chosen area. “This year we expanded our search area, we flew to Denmark, where we spent a lot of time with the fishermen, looking for information that could shed new light on our activities,” comments Tomasz Stachura, project leader.

The crew will set sail on a cutter, which, suitably adapted and equipped by the Maritime Institute in Gdansk, will be transformed into a research vessel for the duration of the expedition. “We have world-class equipment, we have the right technical facilities, we are very determined, we must succeed,” comments Dr Benedykt Hac, head of the hydrographic team.

“SANTI Find the Eagle” is a long-term project. It is a private initiative of a group of a dozen or so people – professional divers, experts in hydrography and history, who have established a foundation called “To Find the Eagle” with private funds. The project will be carried out not only until the resting place of the wreck of the Eagle is found, but also until the cause of the ship’s sinking is explained. The undertaking, whose titular sponsor is the Gdynia-based company SANTI, assumes successive exploration of the North Sea bottom in the areas where, according to assumed hypotheses, the wreck of ORP “Orzeł” is most likely to be found.

The essence of the project’s operation is to conduct research both during the sea expeditions and during the remaining months on land, which is why the team spends a considerable amount of time searching for various sources of information, not only those in the archives. “I still believe that consistency is the source of every success, hence I hope that our determination will eventually lead to the discovery of the ‘Eagle’,” adds Tomasz Stachura, head of the project.

SANTI is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of diving clothing and equipment. In just a few years, the company from Gdynia has transformed from a local manufacturer of diving suits into a brand with an established position on the global diving equipment market.

The company is present on all continents, selling to nearly 40 countries worldwide, including: the USA, South Korea, Canada, Australia, Brazil and the main European markets. SANTI’s flagship products include dry diving suits and warmers. The company is the originator and the leading manufacturer of diving warming accessories, such as heated gloves or waistcoats.

For several years SANTI has been actively involved in the organisation and support of international research expeditions (e.g. Sedna, Under the Pole, Elysium) and shipwreck explorations around the world. This is how the project “SANTI – Finding the Eagle” was born, a project that aims to find the wreck and finally solve the mystery of the disappearance of the Polish ship.
