Odesa is reviving the former glory of the “city of captains”, regularly supplying the country's fleet and shipping companies around the world with qualified personnel. Another confirmation was yesterday opening of the VII International Forum and the exhibition ‘Education, Training and Employment of Seamen at the passenger terminal.’ More than 180 delegates representing 100 organizations and companies from 25 countries: Bulgaria, Great Britain, Germany ... Ukraine took part in the 2-day program of forum events. They include international associations, maritime educational institutions, training centers, shipping and crewing companies and developers of marine simulators, software and equipment.


On the opening day of the forum, June 5, under the auspices of the Youth Organization of the Port of Odesa (YOPO), an introductory excursion to the Vorontsov lighthouse was organized for the finalists of the ‘Miss and Mr. of ONMU’ contest (Odesa National Maritime University). According to the leader of the YOPO, Olga Galajyan, sunny and calm weather promoted a safe walk along the legendary Raid mole. Tatyana Yakovleva, an experienced guide, fascinatingly told students about the life of the port and the history of its hydraulic structures. The dolphins playing at the lighthouse added some delight to the overall emotional effect.
