Here’s some GoPro video of a cadet at Russia’s Murmansk State Technical University climbing a 58-meter mast onboard the STS Sedov, a steel-hulled barque and one of the largest training vessels in the world.
The Sedov was originally built in Kiel, Germany for the commercial shipping company F.A. Vinnen & Co. and will in 2015 be celebrating its 95th birthday.
