17.02.2020

Training sailing vessels of the Federal Fisheries Agency Pallada and Kruzenshtern, which are now on a round-the-world expedition in honor of the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Russian sailors Faddei Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev and the 75th anniversary of the Victory, left the port of the Argentine city of Ushuaia on Friday and is now heading to its culmination. Over the 105 days of the expedition, the Pallas frigate covered more than 12 thousand miles, and its big brother, the Kruzenshtern barque, which had been on the cruise for more than two months, covered 8.5 thousand miles.

Now, the sailing vessels will head to the South Georgia archipelago, where in the second half of February they will meet with the Sedov barque and conduct a 200-mile sailing race.

Training sailing vessels Pallada, Sedov, and Kruzenshtern are equipped with Gonets ship earth stations to track their location in real time. You can track the movement of vessels on CFMC cartography. The project is carried out by the Center for Fishery Monitoring and Communications (CFMC) in cooperation with the Unified Operator for Communication Systems, Broadcasting and Transmission of the Roskosmos State Corporation - Gonets Satellite System.

The first half of the expedition is dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica, part after the race will be dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War. Sailing vessels will not be able to reach Antarctica itself due to technical characteristics that do not allow them to go south of 60 degrees latitude.

During several months of sailing, the vessels had to deal with various weather conditions. The first two weeks were severe storms when the sailboats passed the Baltic and North Seas and reached the Atlantic.

Three training vessels participate in the round-the-world expedition of sailing vessels of the Federal Agency for Fisheries: Pallas, Kruzenshtern and Sedov. Pallada set sail on November 1 from Vladivostok, Sedov and Kruzenshtern - from Kaliningrad on December 8. Sedov and Pallas will circumnavigate the world, and Kruzenshtern will make a transatlantic cruise.

In total, 692 cadets of the Federal Fisheries Agency Will undertake internship and 56 shipboys will be engaged on board the sailing boats. Along the way, sailing ships will make more than 40 calls at ports of the countries of North and South America, Africa, Europe, Oceania and will cover about 100 thousand nautical miles.
