which discovered the Antarctica.

THE YACHT "APOSTOL ANDREY"
IS GOING TO CIRCUMNAVIGATE THE ANTARCTICA

On September 14, 2004 a famous yacht "Apostol Andrey" started a new circumnavigation. The yacht went to the shores of the Antarctica and sailed around it without going further to the north beyond the 60-th parallel, which is the border of the Antarctic region in accordance with the International Agreement. The crew established the record of penetrating of sailing yachts to the south crossed the 70-th parallel of the south latitude.

A popular Russian magazine "Vokrug Sveta" is a co-organizer of this circumnavigation.

Two hundred years ago, for the first time in history, the two Russian ships "Neva" and "Nadezhda" under the command of Ivan Kruzenshtern and Yuriy Lysyansky circumnavigated the globe. Since that time the long-distance voyages as a rule they were circumnavigations became the regular events in the activities of the Russian Navy, The government took appropriate measures to guarantee a permanent presence of the Russian fleet in the Ocean. Our sailors charted hundreds islands, the north and the east coasts of Asia, the northwest part of America. But the most significant achievement had become the discovery of the Antarctica in 1820, made by Faddey Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev. In summer 1819 the sloops "Vostok" and "Mirny" sailed from Kronshtadt, 185 years later the yacht "Apostol Andrey" will also start its route to the shores of the Antarctica.

In 2005 there was the anniversary of the regular Russian explorations of the sixth continent - fifty years ago the first Soviet Antarctic expedition started to work.

The triumphal circumnavigation was finished in St. Petersburg. On August 5, 2006 the yacht "Apostol Andrew" arrived in Kronshtadt exactly on the same day when 185 years ago the sloops "Vostok" and "Mirny" returned to the native harbour. And on September 1 the famous yacht was greeted by citizens of Moscow and Mayor Yury Luzhkov at the berth of the Moscow Museum Reserve "Kolomenskoye".
