Russian sailboat Palada sails from Vladivostok to go around the world

VLADIVOSTOK, RUSSIA  – The three-masted training ship Palada sailed

from the port of Vladivostok,

in the Russian Far East, for a cruise around the world, the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency reported.
The trip is dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Russian navigators and to the 75th anniversary of the Victory over Nazi Germany.

In the 222 days of circumnavigation the sailboat will travel about 40,000 maritime miles making stops in the ports of Apia, Papeete, Valparaiso, Ushuaia, Cape Town, Port Louis, Singapore, Muara, Nagasaki, and from the latter will return to Vladivostok in December 2020

The ship launched in 1989 already went around the world in 2007 and is considered by Guinness World Records as the fastest frigate for having reached a speed of 18.7 knots.

Kruzenshtern and Sedov sailboats will join the current expedition, the three ships will meet in the Antarctic part of the Atlantic where they will hold a joint regatta, in which sailboats from other countries will also participate.

Cadets of educational institutions, as well as sea club clubs are the lucky ones who will go around the world aboard the three ships.

 ships will be open to visitors as museums, in ports of call.
