In honor of the 300th anniversary of Yekaterinburg, a group of enthusiasts will go on a trip around the world
In honor of the 300th anniversary of Yekaterinburg in 2022, they will organize a trip around the world on an ocean yacht. This was reported on the Yekaterinburg.rf portal.
The head of the city, Alexei Orlov, took part in a briefing to discuss the concept of the project, within which several enthusiasts will go on a long voyage. They will travel on a vessel made at the Uralkhimmash plant from high-strength aviation titanium.
It is noted that it will take at least six months to agree on a multi-day route, to form the final composition of the crew and equipment of the ship for a long journey.
According to Orlov, the main goal of traveling around the globe is to popularize Yekaterinburg as a world industrial, cultural, sports and financial center.
The 300th anniversary is planned to be celebrated in 2023.
Earlier in November it was reported that the Klochkov family from Novosibirsk seven years ago went on a voyage around the world. They spent the money saved up for an apartment on a yacht, and then decided to go to sea for an indefinite period. So, travelers passed the ocean pole of inaccessibility – Point Nemo, then Cape Horn – the most dangerous place in the ocean, as well as many other places.
