Sergio Davì catches Covid

by Dionisia Bellavista 7 Jan 22:45 PST

Little mishap for captain Sergio Davì, fortunately without serious consequences.

The brave italian RIB captain, engaged in his thrilling challenge from Palermo to Los Angeles - Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure - started on December 15th, is forced to extend his stay on the island of Gran Canaria, after having tested positive for Covid in the last 48 hours. Luckily these are mild symptoms. Sergio Davì has in fact comforted his relatives, friends and followers by short live streamings on his social channels.

Thanks to the carefully prepared organizational work, the captain immediately placed himself in self-isolation in the hotel where he is staying, alerting the Spanish tourist medical assistance service which provided the guidelines to follow.

Therefore, the activities scheduled on the island with Movil Motors (Suzuki Marine Spain), Nuova Jolly and Simrad are temporarily postponed, with which an important checkup operation, technical assistance and further tests will be carried out before the two big crossings of almost 900 nautical miles from Gran Canaria to Mindelo (Cape Verde) and nearly 1800 nautical miles from Mindelo to Kourou (French Guiana).

Meanwhile, the Aretusa Explorer is preciously kept in the Puerto Deportivo Pasito Blanco in Gran Canaria (Local Partner of the Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure).

Wishing to the captain a speedy recovery, we hope to see him coming back soon to sail on his route to Los Angeles.

It's possible to follow the Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure by Facebook (Sergio Davì Adventures) and Instagram (@sergiodavi_adventures).
