Sailboats

Nautical wings of Vladivostok

Watching the sails of “Pallada” and “Nadezhda” leisurely float by on the water of the Golden Horn and Amur Bays with the scenic picturesque hills and streets running down to the sea in the background is simply breathtaking. Majestic and proud, they are true aristocrats of the ocean.

Vladivostok is the only city in Russia that is home to two large sailboats. What’s more, there are only two cities like this in the entire world: Vladivostok and Tokyo.

“Nadezhda” frigate is a training ship for the Admiral Nevelskoy Maritime State University. It is named after a famous sailing ship that, under the command of Ivan Kruzenshtern and Yuri Lisiansky, two centuries ago sailed around the world for the first time in the history of Russian fleets.

The 26 sails are controlled exclusively by hand and are the main driver of the vessel. The two engines are driven by one variable-pitch propeller and are used for navigation in storm conditions as well as when entering and leaving a port. The crew consists of a maximum of 199 people.

“Pallada” is named after the eponymous flagship of Admiral Putyatin that, for diplomatic purposes, voyaged from Kronstadt (a St. Petersburg’s main seaport) across the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans to the shores of Japan. “Pallada” is a training ship of the Far Eastern State Technical Fisheries University.
