KALININGRAD, March 15 (Itar-Tass) — The legendary sailing-ship Krusenstern of the Baltic State Academy of Fishing Fleet set out from here Thursday on a long voyage to the shores of Morocco and France. During the voyage, 120 students of several educational establishments of the Federal Agency for Fishery (FAF) -- from Kaliningrad, Astrakhan, Yeisk, and St Petersburg -- will undergo nautical training, the Academy’s official has told Itar-Tass.

This is the first of this year's three voyages. For the first time in 20 years, the barque will call at the port of Casablanca (Morocco), where agreements are to be signed between the FAF and the Moroccan Mnistry for Fisheries.

The farthest point of the spring-time voyage will be the French port of Sete, whereto the sailing-ship has never been and where the barque will participate in a nautical festival which will be held there from April 6 to 9.
