Pilotage of the Russian Tall Ship ‘Kruzenshtern’ during Sailing Parade into Harlingen.


During the Sailing Parade into Harlingen the Russian Tall Ship ‘Kruzenshtern’ was piloted by Johan de Joode, president/manager operations of the region North of the Dutch Pilots’ Association. Despite all the modern developments piloting is still done with a rope ladder. It is very impressive to see.
The Tall Ship ‘Kruszenshtern’ is my favorite tall ship. She is a four masted barque, length 114 m and width 14 m and is one of the biggest tall ships in the world. She belongs to the Baltic State Academy of the Fishing Fleet (Kaliningrad). The ‘Kruzenshtern’ is today a sail training vessel, training students of the maritime training institutions of the Federal Fishery Agency.
