July 23. The team has been assembled.
I arrived in Magadan on Friday, July, 23. Irina Utekhina has already arrived from her vacation. Immediately after arrival, I paid a visit to the boat inspection office and arranged the seaworthiness certificate for our inflatable dingy. To my surprise I found there a former Magadan Nature Reserve ranger, who is now the marine inspector. This encounter sped up the procedures dramatically.
By the evening I had made some plans for a sea trip, however the forecast was not good.
