Russia’s sailing ship "Pallada" docked at the port in San Francisco on Saturday morning, according to the spokesman for the Far Eastern State Technical Fishing University.

      The stay of ship in the port lasted three days and it is only a part of a big four-month trip dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's space flight and the 270th anniversary of the discovery of "Russian America" by Russian travelers. During that trip, the "Pallada" is scheduled to call at ports in the United States, Canada and Japan.

      The ship is carrying more than 100 cadets from the Primorye and Kamchatka territories. In San Francisco they visited historical sites connected with Russian-American history: Russian Hill and Fort Ross, Russia's southernmost settlement in North America. The crew members met with University of California students and played a soccer game with a U.S. Coast Guard team.

      The ship was availabe for excursions and short tours round it. All the guests were able to see special exhibitions featuring Gagarin's flight and "Russian America" discovery.

      Today the "Pallada" has left the port of San Francisco. The ship's next destination is Los Angeles, where the ship will spend three days filled with a variety of cultural exchange events.

      "Pallada" was built in 1989 in Poland. Guinness World Records lists Pallada as the fastest sailing ship in the world.
