Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
The Entry "Sailing Vessels" has two variants: one written in English and another written in Russian. First was created in Russian, bacause the idea belongs to the Russian students Mishurin Alexander and Zelensky Evgeny of the 10 grade, Omsk, That's why this part of the sight is more informative, it contains the history of building both Russian and foreign sailing vessels, it also has the following articles: Morse code, sea terms dictonary, a puzzle, funny stories connected with sea, folk signs to forecast the weather and others. The sight describes the most ressels, dimensions, their structure, euipment and different types of sails. The English version is not so detailed. It describes only the beginning and development of Russian sailing shipbuilding from simple rowing vessels of Kiev Russia (1136) up to the latest models of Ekaterina's epoch, XIX century. We think it would be interesting for the foreign students to learn some facts especially from the Russian history. The sight represents the full discription of each ship, the history of its designedand building, the essence of the given name, some information about famous people, who commanded those ships, and the historic battles in which they participated. The same part of the sight has the article "Make It Yourself" which describes how to make the vessel model your self.
