His Majesty Rector of the Maritime University of Gdynia prof. Ph.D. engineer captain z.w. During the lighting ceremony of the Christmas lights on “Dar Młodzieży”, Adam Weintrit emphasized the frigate’s connection with its home port – Gdynia:
– This is the largest Christmas tree in Tricity. Many of our students, especially graduates, spend their holidays at sea. And this is a symbolic gesture. We will cultivate this tradition. I have emphasized many times that we have a large inscription “Gdynia” on the stern and we would like to be close to the inhabitants of Gdynia.
