Gorch Fock I (ex Tovarishch, ex Gorch Fock) is a Germanthree-mast barque, the first of a series built as school ships for the German Reichsmarine in 1933. She was taken as war reparations by the Soviet Unionafter World War II and renamed Tovarishch. The ship was acquired by sponsors, after a short period under the Ukrainianflag in the 1990s and a prolonged stay in British ports due to lack of funds for necessary repairs, and she sailed to her original home port of Stralsund where her original name of Gorch Fock was restored on 29 November 2003. She is a museum ship, and extensive repairs were carried out in 2008.
