""Laisve" a parcouru le monde près d'une fois et demie, traversant même l'équateur 4 fois. Il a d'abord traversé l'Atlantique jusqu'en Amérique du Sud, puis a traversé l'Atlantique jusqu'en Afrique du Sud, l'océan Indien, l'Australie, la Nouvelle-Zélande, puis en diagonale à travers l'océan Pacifique, à travers une série d'îles océaniques au large de la Californie jusqu'aux États-Unis, puis à l'ouest des deux continents vers le sud, autour de la Corne, encore une fois sur la côte nord-est, jusqu'à New York"

"However, after making the youngster happy for another season of navigation, "Laisvë" was left ashore again for major repairs. Because the metal shell of the ship, which is sensitive to corrosion, was badly corroded by the sea salts instead; during the welding work, some structural defects left by the shipbuilders themselves came to light. In addition, it is necessary to replace the piping and complex electrical wiring inside, after removing the interior trim. In other words, it is not enough to repair the ship temporarily - it needs to be thoroughly repaired. Such repairs are expensive; due to lack of funds, the accelerated work stopped. So today "Laisve" is still waiting for better years",
