Life under sail

Life under sail

The Yakut summer is short, only two warm months. And every year at this time the summer camp, called the Yacht Club "Parus", hospitably receives several dozen children on the bank of the Neryungrinskaya TPP reservoir. This year the basics of yachting are being mastered by boys and girls 7-12 years old. Parus, created a quarter of a century ago in the village of Serebryany Bor, is the only club in South Yakutia that teaches children the technique of sailing on a sailing yacht. And his first coach was the legendary yachtsman Viktor Ivanovich Vashchenko.

The season at Parus begins with teaching beginners and repeating theoretical knowledge by those who have been coming to the camp for more than a year. The most interesting thing is, of course, practical exercises. Children in life jackets enter the pontoon to the disassembled yachts and take out the sails they brought with them. Armament of the yacht begins. In this difficult science for beginners, every detail counts. Water abhors mistakes. Children are taught to act without mistakes and in a team - soon it will definitely help them to cope with the elements.
