STS Sedov anchored in the bay of Mecklenburg

10.08.2016

The sailing tour № 1-94 of the sailing training vessel Sedov continues. STS Sedov covered 700 nautical miles on the way from Bremen to Rostock, Germany.

The North Sea, Skagerrak and Kattegat straights had been left behind the stern of the vessel. Sometimes the vessel had accelerated up to 11 knots.

The vast cyclone in the Eastern part of Europe and the North Sea brought with it winds that blew with force up to 20 meters per second. And in order to arrive in the port Rostock in time, the captain Viktor Nikolin resolved to sail in the Sund straight. Sedov continued its navigation under the sails, and the crew was awarded with an opportunity to look at the legendary Kronborg Castle in Helsingør. Kronborg Castle became famous as Elsinore in Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Despite complex weather conditions the work on Sedov's board is implementing under the boatswain's supervision. Specialists give lectures to cadets on maritime issues. Cadets, in particular, learn how to tie knots.
