Happy Birthday, Mikhail Moroz!

17 November, 2012

Today on the 17th of November the crew of “Scorpius” is celebrating the birthday of the engineer Mikhail Moroz. As a participant of the expedition Mikhail had passed two circumnavigations around the South and North poles, and is put forward for the state decoration – the order “For Courage” – by the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovich.

By Her edict the Head of the Russian Imperial House the Great Duchess Maria Vladimirovna granted to Mikhail Alekseevich Moroz the right to wear a medal of the IMPERIAL order of Saint-Anna for successful accomplishment of the record-breaking cruise around the South and North poles on board the yacht “Scorpius” within the project “National interests of Russia – from the pole to the pole”, in commemoration of that she “signed and presented him the letter” in her own hand.

We wish to Mikhail new achievements, ideas and, of course, big heavenly love, worth the courageous and desperate sailor. And let the luck always stay with you!
