HISTORY OF THE BARQUE SEDOV
The world's largest sailing training ship (STS) barque Sedov, is making her second circumnavigation of the world. She is one of the oldest sailing vessels which are still in operation.
The day of shipbuilder celebrated on June 29 is a great occasion to familiarize the cadets with the vessel where they are going to learn, work and live. The century-old vessel has a rich history and a lot of places which are worth seeing.
There was a ceremonial formation arranged on the Sedov. So, it can be assumed that the second part of the expedition was launched.There are only days left before ship's departure. The last cadets who had made the long journey from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok went home. The parting speech was made to them by the new Master Viktor Nikolin.
