Photographer's Note

This photo shows the Russian training ship, Nadezhda, that left a very grey Hong Kong yesterday, after a 4-day visit to the territories.

I took this photo on board the Star Ferry, that travels between Hung Hom in Kowloon and Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island.

The 109-metre vessel, is owned by the Russian Maritime State University and is the final stages of a 14-month round-the-world journey.

The Nadezhda is mostly used to train cadets how to sail, although the crew has also been carrying out scientific experiments.

The voyage has been timed to coincide with the bicentenary of the first circumnavigation of the globe by a Russian ship, also called the Nadezhda.
