The first stage of the Sea Cup competition of the International Army Games 2021 was held at the training center of the Navy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, located in the city of Bandar Anzali. Crews of ships from Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan and Russia competed in the speed of repairing various types of damage to the hull on the coastal training simulator for fighting water.

The holes were sealed with the rescue equipment of the host country.

According to the lot, the Russian team had to act as the first number, which played a cruel joke with the Caspian sailors. Accustomed to their patches and sliding stops, they did not immediately adapt to the local equipment and lost valuable time. The rest of the teams acted faster and more confidently. The Iranian team won the first stage. The second, with a slight lag behind the leader, were the sailors from Kazakhstan, and the third – from Azerbaijan. At the same time, they all performed in the reverse order with respect to the occupied places.

Tomorrow the crew of the small artillery ship (IAC) “Makhachkala” will try to improve the results at a new stage of the competition – rescue training. Teams of naval sailors of five will have to swim 25 meters in life suits to a life raft, and then, having climbed on it, overcome the same distance back to the starting position, helping themselves to move with oars and hands.

For reference:

The Sea Cup competition consists of six stages: naval training (anchoring and drumming), damage control of the ship (sealing holes) on a coastal training simulator, rescue training (boarding a life raft), destruction of a floating mine from a machine gun and artillery shooting at sea and air targets. The tests will last until September 3, after which the awards ceremony and competition closing ceremony will take place. At the end of the first decade of September, a detachment of ships of the Caspian Flotilla consisting of Makhachkala, Astrakhan and SB-738 will return to their permanent base.
