You know it’s the most high-speed sailing ship among the existing ones today. And not everyone has a chance to come aboard. Here you can see what interesting the sailing ship has there.

Can you imagine how it is to adjust the sails? Try to climb the height of a 15-storey building without insurance and walk along the yards. Is it hot?

The crew is 199 persons.

The ropes are wide a human hand. And there are no hoists here. Everything is done with a muscle power of the sailors. Cable bridles are lifted with help of a windlass. Everything else is only hands, hands, hands of the big team.

The crew has ladies too and they are equally with men good at managing the sails and tacking.

Even having modern devices they won’t sail anywhere without paper maps. When electronics fails, a map will be there to help.

On the deck. It is a bit shorter than 100m. Try to imagine how it is like to run along it here and there with heavy ropes, against the strong wind, when the water level on the deck is about 30 cm. It happens sometimes in stormy weather.

“MIR” has no passengers aboard, only its crew. And it isn’t used for cargoes transportation either.

  1. Designed (Z.Choren) and built (Stocznia Gdanska) in Gdansk, Poland, has five sisterships among which Dar Młodziezy and Chersonez are best known for their appearances in Tall Ships races. Beautiful indeed.

  2. ““MIR” has no passengers aboard, only its crew. And it isn’t used for cargoes transportation either.”
    So what is the purpose, then?

  3. I love sailing ships very much, but my heart is crying when I see “Mir”. This ship definitely needs restoration: rust under the paint, wooden walls chaotically drilled for cables, worn out chairs in officers dinning room, padlock on the old soviet style door… And this is only things seen on photos; on board, I believe, we would see much more sad things about this beautiful ship.
