For more Russian nautical fun, and the story of a voyage that couldn't
be made into a film as no one would believe it, have a listen/watch Drachinifel's wonderful story on YT of the Second Russian Pacific Cruiser Squadron. I haven't laughed so much since reading Pratchett or about Bandy in WWI. I'll always have a soft spot for Rozhestvensky. That voyage is a guaranteed nautical oddity!
Oh, and everyone nautical must acknowledge the wonderful efforts of the Kamchatka
to preserve world peace and provide humor
in the darkest times...OMG!

and then listen to Drachinifel...
