Biography


“Wooden, traditional gaff ketch, on the initiative of General Mariusz Zaruski, was built in Sweden for the money coming from contributions of members of the Maritime and Colonial League. After almost 4 years of arduous process of revitalization, on 30-th of October 2012, in the presence of President Bronisław Komorowski, the sail of STS General Zaruski had been set then the vessel arrived proudly at the of head sailing parade, greeted by thousands of Gdansk students, locals and tourists. In this way, the work of rescuing of the well-deserved unit had been accomplished and the ship will start writing new cards of its history as an important element of training of young sailors and sea lovers.”
