Impressive armada of the biggest educational sailing ships from around the world, including the Russian "Mir", "Sedov", "Krusenstern" and "Nadezhda" have double-crossed the Black Sea and made stops at four ports: Varna, Novorossiysk, Sochi and Constanta.

Originally created as means for supporting sailing ships, disappearing from oceanic surfaces, now they serve a different purpose: unite nations; acquaint young people with sailing races; play the role of a good life school for troubled teens, because the whole world believes the sea sailing is one of the best means for the education of the young generation.
