The seafarers from the Apollo Sun, held in Le Havre since mid-November, have at last been able to leave the ship and return to their homes.
For almost 50 days, ITF and Le Havre Seamen’s Club have battled to assist the crew. This ocean-going tug had been held in Le Havre due, at the start, to a technical incident.
The shipowner very quickly lost interest in his crew.
Teams from Le Havre Seamen’s Club have been visiting the seamen on board. Furthermore, the crew was made welcome several times on the premises of the Association Havraise d’Accueil des Marins.
