World’s Largest Rigged Sailing Ship Headed for Iceland

The world’s largest rigged sailing vessel, the three-masted Sedov, is on its way to Iceland, according to the Russian news agency Ria Novosti. The ship left the harbor in Amsterdam on Monday after a four-day stopover.

Sedov, which has a crew of 103 students of a Russian sailor school, has been traveling around Europe this summer. It garnered considerable attention in Scandinavia where a few concerts were held onboard the ship, reports.

Sedov, which means “bark”, was built in Germany in 1921 and went into the ownership of the Russian state after Germany’s defeat in World War II.

One of the world’s largest yachts, which is owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, recently docked in Reykjavík harbor.
