TS#04 The Mir

TS#04 The Mir

Fine Art Giclee Print From An Original Watercolour Painting By Peter Harvey Graver


The most incredible sight and one we will never forget was The Mir coming passed St Antony lighthouse on her way to Falmouth Harbour. Her majestic presence was something to behold. Mir, which means 'peace', is the third ship of a series of six built in the 1980's at the Lenin shipyard in Gdansk, Poland. She was designed as a training ship intended for training cadets and taking part in tall ships' races. The Mir was built as part of a trading deal between Poland and Russia in 1987.  She was a new type of design for square rigged training vessels, and rigged differently so she could sail closer to the wind - up to 30 degrees rather than the usual 60 degrees for square riggers. We were very privileged to meet the Captain and crew. It was an honour to be invited into the Officers Mess where we were able to present the Captain with the painting of his marvellous ship. It now has pride of place in their award room.
