During the festival “Armada Rouen 2019” the crew of the barque «Kruzenschtern»had a chance to meet with the world-famous yachtsman Jean-Luc Van Den Heede, the winner of the Golden Globe Race. His visit was specially arranged to meet the young professionals and share his valuable experience. At the meeting, the renowned French sailor narrated about 211 days of non-stop racing and had a question-and-answer session at the end of the talk.
The meeting was organized by a representative of the 6MX watch manufacture together with the administration of the Baltic Fishing Fleet State Academy. 6MX watchmakers prepared two watches as a token of our gratitude to the yachtsman. One of the watches presented to Jean-Luc is the final model in the series "Kapitanskie".
The other model is from the new collection of fiberglass watches, which is scheduled to be launched in serial production in July - August 2019. Russian yachtsman Igor Zaretsky, who also took part in the round-the-world race, has already become a proud owner of this model.
