Olshana

Faeroe Islands,Europe

Olshana was a Atlantic 333 stern type trawler laid down at Volkswerft VEB in Stralsund, and was launched in 1984 for a Russian fishing company.  She hit ground 2. August 2007 at Flesjarnar on a journey from Kollafjordur to the open seas for her seasonal fishing. The crew had to abandon ship, and was re-floated from the reef the following morning and taken in tow to safe harbor. But barely ten minutes after she disappeared in the deep. The wreck rest today standing on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 55 to 75 meter outside Munkurin.
