Shtandart in Ramsgate Harbour

The modern Shtandart – a replica of the frigate Shtandart that was the first ship of Russia’s Baltic fleet launched in 1703 by the decree of Tsar Peter I – was tied up in Ramsgate Harbour over the weekend.

My pal Ian Carter kindly sent me these photos.

She’s 90ft in length on deck and 23ft wide – which doesn’t seem very large when her original crew complement in 1703 was between 120 and 150! Read about her here and here.

Thanks Ian!
