THE SECOND CIRCUMNAVIGATION
of the yacht "Apostol Andrey"

On October 14, 2001 a famous Russian yacht "Apostol Andrey" started its second circumnavigation.

In 19961999 this yacht of the Moscow Adventure Club carried out the first unprecedented circumnavigation around the Eastern Hemisphere, establishing three world records at the same time:

  • for the first time a circumnavigation was carried out along the meridian;
  • for the first time the route of the voyage crossed the waters of all four Oceans of our planet;
  • for the first time in the world seafaring history a sailing vessel had crossed the Northeast Passage.

The Royal Cruising Club of the Great Britain acknowledged the first expedition on the yacht "Apostle Andrew" as the most outstanding achievement in the world seafaring in 1999.

The first sailing was carried out under the blessing of His Holiness Alexey II, Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia. His Holiness gave the name "Apostol Andrey" to the yacht.

The route of the second circumnavigation of the yacht "Apostol Andrey" will pass around the Western Hemisphere and would be no less difficult and fascinating. The Russian yacht will start in St. Petersburg and after crossing the Atlantic Ocean she will reach the coast of the Antarctica. Paying the tribute to the Russian first explorers of the sixth Continent, the crew will visit the Russian Polar Station "Bellingshausen" and the Island of the Peter the Great in the Bellingshausen Sea. Then the seafarers will continue their route over the Pacific Ocean to Alaska. A sailing along the northern shores of Alaska and the channels of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago would become the culmination point of the route.

In case of successful completion of the voyage the yacht "Apostol Andrey" would become the first Russian yacht which has sailed through the Northwest Passage.
