Sailing boat Khersones takes part in the celebration of the 96th anniversary of the ICC "Artek"
The sailing training vessel Khersones of FSUE "Rosmorport" takes part in festive events dedicated to the 96th anniversary of the International Children's Center "Artek".
On July 15, the sailing boat anchored on a raid of the seaport of Yalta. Unfortunately, visits on the board of the vessel are limited against the background of anti-epidemiological measures, so the cadets and crew recorded a video message for the Artek children.
A long friendship bonds FSUE "Rosmorport" and ICC "Artek". Within the framework of the socially oriented innovative educational project "My Port", the enterprise implements thematic programs in the children's center, therefore allowing children to get acquainted with the maritime affairs and learn about the promising professions of the industry.
The sailing boat Khersones is one of five sailing training "sister ships" built at the Gdansk shipyard by order of the USSR. Today, this sailing boat is the base for the practical training of cadets from the State Maritime University named after admiral F.F. Ushakov. The 26 sails of the magnificent three-masted frigate are controlled exclusively by hand and are the main propeller of the vessel.
