Life under sail

Life under sail

Yakut summer is short, only two warm months. And every year at this time the summer camp, called the Parus Yacht Club, hospitably welcomes several dozen children on the shore of the reservoir of the Neryungri State District Power Plant. This year, boys and girls 7-12 are mastering the basics of yachting. “Parus”, created a quarter of a century ago in the village of Serebryany Bor, is the only club in South Yakutia that teaches children how to walk on a sailing yacht. And his first coach was the legendary yachtsman Viktor Ivanovich Vashchenko in these parts.

The season in “Parus” begins with the training of beginners and the repetition of theoretical knowledge by those who have been coming to the camp for years. The most interesting is, of course, practical exercises. Children in life jackets go to the pontoon to disassembled yachts and bring the sails brought with them. Starts arming the yacht. In this challenging science for beginners every detail is important. Water does not tolerate errors. Children are taught to act without mistakes and in a team - in a short time it will help them to cope with the elements.
