SAN PEDRO (CBS) — The Russian tall ship Pallada will be open for tours Saturday in the Port of Los Angeles.

The 356-foot vessel, which is used for training Russian navy cadets, will be showcased at Berth 87 off Harbor Boulevard near First Streets.

The Pallada is among the fastest big sailing vessels left in the world. It’s known to hit 18 knots in a stiff, open ocean breeze.
