    Yes. Krusenstern and Lisianski made the first Russian circumnavigation,
    on two ships.
    They left Kronstadt in 1803, and proceeded by Cape Horn and
    Sandwich Islands to Kamchatka and then to Japan.
    Returning by Cape of  Good Hope they completed the circumnavigation in
    1806.
    
    In his publications, Krusenstern advocated the trade communication with
    China by
    going around the Cape Horn.
