The barque is going to Atlantic ocean.
The Kruzenshtern is leaving her home port Kaliningrad on the 16th of August. During the 77 days of the voyage the barque is going to cross the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, then through the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay the vessel is going to enter the Mediterranean sea and finally reach the Canaries through the Atlantic ocean.

Among the ports of call are Vlissingen (Netherlands) where Kruzenshtern is participating in a marine festival, Zeebrugge (Belgium), from where the cadets are going to take tours through the town of Brugge and Santander (Spain) where the ship’s supplies are going to be restocked. After that, the barque is going to take part in the Mediterranean regatta, organized by the Sail Training International. The race is heading to Toulon (France) and then there is the passage to Canary islands through the Atlantic. During this passage, the cadets are going to do most of the studying planned for the voyage, as well as trying out the new sails. In Rostock the cadets are going to visit the school of Ivan Fedorovich Kruzenshtern and participate in sports competitions.
The vessel is planning to come back home in Kaliningrad on the 29th of October.
