This morning arrived in Funchal the “Afonso Cerqueira” corvette that the Navy will sink on September 4th to give way to an artificial reef.
According to the photographic record of Alfredo Rodrigues, on the Funchal News website, this morning the corvette was accompanied by two tugboats.
At the end of its life, the ship will now support marine life and enhance recreational diving.
It is recalled that the sinking will take place in the Marine Park of Cabo Girão.
The Port Authority of Funchal thus fulfills the schedule of preparations. After a lot of material was removed in Lisbon, the warship was towed and now it goes to the sinking area, its last abode.
