"Shtandart" can return home
The frigate "Standart" has finally received the long-awaited state registration and after 11 years of sailing in the waters of Europe will be able to return home. This news was posted on the sailing ship's Instagram channel.
The historical ship "Shtandart", created in St. Petersburg according to the drawings of the 18th century, will be recorded in the register as a sports training ship, with a crew of 36 people and a sailing area of 2 (this means 200 miles from the port-shelter, and wind force up to 28 m / s) …
“It took a lot of time and required a lot of calculations and justifications: why are there so many sailors that the ship will not capsize, etc.). Now, hopefully, the bureaucratic turmoil is over. Happy sailing! " – adds the team and confirms: with the documents and technical inspection, the ship can finally enter its native ports. However, this year they ask not to wait: until next June, the plans are scheduled.
The wooden "Standard" is a historical replica of the warship of Peter the Great in 1703, built in St. Petersburg in 1999. Petersburgers know the frigate with scarlet sails – in 2005, 2006, 2007 it delighted graduates, in 2008 it was replaced by Mir. Captain Vladimir Martus said that his ship fell out of favor after taking part in the international regatta The Tall Ship Races. As a result, Shtandart left Russia in 2009, and had to fight for the right to return for more than one year.
