Originally named ALEVTINA TUY, this vessel started life as one of five replica Baltic trading schooner's built in Russia in 1995 to commemorate the tri-centenary of Peter the Great's navy and reflects a particular kind of small square-rigged schooner.

In 2004 - 2005 ALEVTINA TUY was adapted to reflect the design of HM Schooner PICKLE in order to take part in the SeaBritain celebrations in 2005 to mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.

HM Schooner PICKLE sailed to Falmouth with the news of the death of Lord Nelson and the triumph at Cape Trafalgar over the combined French and Spanish fleets on reaching England, PICKLE's captain, Lt. Lapenotiere  travelled by fast stage-coach to the Admiralty in London with the news.
