The largest sailing ship in the world is announced at Armada 2019 in Rouen - France

For its seventh edition, the Armada sees big, very big !

The largest school ship in the world is expected on the quays of Rouen !


Armada 2019 - The biggest sailing ship will be present !


This 98-year-old Russian maze, 117 meters long, 30 sails, armed by 65 sailors and carrying 164 Russian army cadets will surely be one of the highlights of the parade in the Seine in June 2019. But to be able to navigate the Seine, yet spanned by bridges in the maritime format (50 meters between the level of the Seine and the bottom of the span of the various bridges), the SEDOV will have to "plan" its mats by four meters ! !
