The Kruzenstern…

Russia’s tall ship Kruzenstern has won the World Cup in an unprecedented regatta in the North Sea that has been underway since August 10th.

The race with a final destination in Amsterdam started 16 miles from Cape Skagen, involving the Kruzenstern and its only worthy rival, another well-known Russian sailing ship Sedov.

The whole idea was initiated by Stema, a German shipbuilding company, which believes there is not a single ship in the world capable of competing with the Kruzenstern.

I have several articles on this ship and I just am amazed at the beauty of this craft. I would love to be able to take a voyage on board the Kruzenstern…

Windows to Russia!
