The 300th anniversary of a fleet is a highlight event for all lovers of sailing. Many things in Russia started during the reign of Peter the Great; therefore, this book is not only about the Neva Fleet itself, but also about the Tsar-Reformer, the city of St. Petersburg as one of his principal achievements, and about the members of the world’s first yacht club.
