Khersones meets first batch of cadets for 2023

On April 1, the sailing training ship Khersones of the FSUE “Rosmorport” Crimean Branch completed the transition from the seaport of Sevastopol to the seaport of Novorossiysk to receive the first batch of cadets in 2023. 107 students and two heads of navigation practice from the Sedov Water Transport Institute – the branch of the Federal State-Financed Educational Institution of Higher Education “Admiral Ushakov Maritime State University” were taken on board. Within a few days the ship will set its first training sail this year.

The reception of the cadets' shift took place at the Novorossiysk sea station at the side of the sailing training ship in a solemn atmosphere in the presence of an orchestra and a famous group. The event was attended by the Heads of the FSFEI HE “AUMSU”, students of schools under the FSFEI HE “AUMSU” patronage and representatives of the FSUE “Rosmorport” Crimean Branch.

The navigation practice of cadets of the first batch will last two months, until the end of May. This year, the STS Khersones will sail along the shores of the Krasnodar Territory with calls to the seaport of Sochi. During the navigation practice, future sailors will have the opportunity to practice the theoretical knowledge acquired at universities and gain the necessary navigation qualification for further work in their specialties.

For reference:

STS Khersones is one of five sailing training ships built at the Gdansk Shipyard by order of the USSR. The ship was designed by the Polish designer Sigmund Horen based on the prototype of sailing vessels of the early 20 century.

Today, the frigate serves as a training base for the practical training of cadets of the FSFEI HE “AUMSU”. The 26 sails of a three-masted ship are the main mover of the ship and can be controlled only by hand.
