The yacht “Argo” was built in 1996 in St.Petersburg, Russia, and since then has been sailing mostly in the Baltic Sea. “Argo” used to sail remote distances. Now the yacht takes part in The Tall Ships’ Races and many regattas in the Gulf of Finland and Baltic Sea.

The current crew was formed of volunteers, who spend all their free time to run the yacht, led by brilliant captain Valeriy Tikhonov.
