The Russian sail training ship Nadezhda will be visiting Honolulu Harbor during the APEC summit next month.

Sailing ship Nadezhda ready for Pacific voyage

The name of the ship should ring a bell with anyone interested in exploration during the Age of Sail. Nadezhda, commanded by Adam Johann von Krusenstern, and Neva, commanded by Yuri Fyodorovich Lisiansky, were the first Russian ships to circumnavigate the globe. The two ships visited Hawaiian waters in the summer of 1804.

(Pretty cool to be able to see two Russian sailing ships within the space of a few months!)
