About the Shooner Polotsk
The Schooner Polotsk was built in 1777 in Ragusa, Italy. Originally given a Greek name, the schooner was used as a privateer to raid Turkish trading ships. However, the schooner soon met the end of its career when it was captured during the Second Russo-Turkish War (1787-1791) by the Turkish fleet. Subsequently, it was purchased bu Russia and renamed Polotsk, and served as a signal ship for the remaining years.
