One day board the Ivan Kruzenstern Ice-breaker

They say that sailors live a double life — one at sea, and the other on dry land. What is the daily working life of a sailor really like? What are the cares and thoughts of the crew of a modest port ice-breaker, amidst teh cold ice and in the long winter nights? How does an ice-breaker force a path where other ships would get stuck? Host Alexander Uvarov, in search of romance and adventure, goes to sea in order to scrub the decks and take his turn at the helm, to learn about sailing in ice conditions and to get know about the practicalities of life at sea. Pull up the anchor!! The Ivan Kruzenshtern Ice-breaker is setting off another voyage with a new sailor on board!
