Today, 4th September, we celebrate the 20th birthday of Shtandart´s launch in St. Peterburg. We congratulate the captain, crew, members of the building team, staff and volunteers on this milestone. It is thanks to their efforts that ´Shtandart´ is a welcomed guest all over Europe, sharing their knowledge and adventures, giving so much pleasure to the younger and older generations in various ways.
Of course there have been ups and downs, but with friendship and involvement of so many people the ship and project managed to survive and became stronger by the years. On behalf of many followers across the seas, let the wind continue to blow in your sails to bring friendship and fun to the countries and ports you will visit in the many years to come. Keep going 'Shtandart'!
