The greatest impression is the port cities which we visited. It was also amazing to cross three oceans at once (Pacific, Atlantic and Indian).
Denis Gnilozub — a navigational cadet of Kamchatka State Technical University:
Working aloft and "all hands on deck" trainings leave strongest impression. It was a breathtaking experience.
Mikhail Nikolenko — a refrigeration cadet of FESTFU college:
I like everything related to my future profession: watches in the engine room, work under supervision of refrigeration engineer and taking over some useful tips from him.
Grigoriy Kholodkov — a navigational cadet of Kamchatka State Technical University:
Everyone was afraid of difficulties we might face but actually there is nothing to fear. Moreover, we have a lot of free time on board and I do like it.
Yaroslav Sheptor – a navigational cadet of FESTFU:
I absolutely liked the regatta of the three tall ships: Pallada, Sedov and Kruzenshtern. I felt the spirit of brotherhood on board. All of us (the whole crew and cadets) were working as one team united by a common goal. Everyone was ready to give each other a helping hand and I really appreciated it.
Alexey Moskvich — a navigational cadet of Vladivostok Maritime Fishing College:
During my practice on the Pallada, I realized that I am up to this profession and I would like to get into navigation.
Ivan Nekrasov — an electrical engineering cadet of FESTFU:
I liked the ports we visited and I cannot forget three stormy days in the Atlantic. Actually I have a myriad of vivid impressions.
Dmitriy Krayev — a refrigeration cadet of Kamchatka State Technical University:
I enjoyed three days in the Atlantic. They were really memorable.
Ivan Aliyev — an engineering cadet of FESTFU college:
I remember the storms. And, of course, watches in the engine room as it is a good practice of my future profession.
Maxim Mordan —a navigational cadet of Vladivostok Maritime Fishing College:
I like climbing to the upper yards and enjoy uninterrupted sea views. The most complicated thing is monotony of life on board but one can get used to it.
