Ship wreck “KWARCIT” or “BORIS”
In Cape Verde, on the seabed of the island of Sal, between 18 and 28 meters deep there is the wreck of the ship “KWARCIT” or “BORIS”, built by the Russians in the 70s, for fishing in ocean. The ship, about 50 meters long, was subsequently used for the transport of illegal immigrants from Senegal. During a crossing, due to an engine failure off Cape Verde, was rescued and then seized by the authorities. The authorities of Cape Verde then decided to sink it in 2006 off the island of Sal.
