Photographer's Note

Mir (Russia)

"Mir" is the Russian for "peace". This large three-masted, square-rigged vessel of the Russian navy is used for training purposes. The pride of the National Maritime Academy at St-Petesburg, she is one of the fasted of the great sailing ships, renowned for numerous successes in the most important races. Traditions dating from the time of the Tsars are still observed on the "Mir". The organisation and operation on this great ship remains, unchanging despite all the political change and turmoil.
