Tall Ship Arrives in Alaska

KODIAK, Alaska — A Russian tall ship has landed on U.S. shores.

The Pallada — a 108-meter, three-masted frigate — arrived in Kodiak on Wednesday morning as hundreds of people lined the waterfront to watch.

The vessel is on the first stop of a North Pacific tour commemorating the 270th anniversary of Russia's colonization of Alaska and the 50th anniversary of Yury Gagarin's pioneering space flight. The ship will also visit Los Angeles, San Francisco and Honolulu.
