Port of Gdynia

August 27th, 2006 sts F.Chopin is expected to moor at Port of Gdynia.

So there will be no problem with a diplomatic argument about German Sea maneuvres which had taken place on the route to Świnoujscie Harbour in recent days. We are sure that sts F.Chopin crew is much better in navigation than Turkish SKY Airlines pilots who landed on a military airport near Poznań instead of civilian one. Brotherhood of Brig navigation is not disturbed ether by the fact that our Solar System has shrunken on August 24th.
