Dear captains and shipowners of sailing yachts!
In recent years, the number of yachts participating in sailing regattas on the Lower Volga has significantly decreased.
The main reason is that the old captains have already grown old, and many have simply passed away. And new captains have not been formed in their former volume.
There were times when replenishment in the ranks of captains was due to the love of sailing in children's sports sections with gifted coaches. The fleet was purchased with the money of trade unions of state-owned enterprises.
Of course, the former era cannot be returned, but I also do not want to put up with the fact that our Lower Volga was left without sails.
The replenishment of the fleet and the composition of the captains themselves is still observed more and more every year. Not at the past pace, but still…
Thanks to the sailing charter abroad, the active advertising of European charter companies, new yachtsmen who are tempted by sails and the sea element appear on our media resources.
The new captains are no longer the guys who signed up for the sailing section as a child, but slightly different guys. Self-sufficient and actively showing interest in sailing and tourism. Able to buy a sailing yacht on their own.
But often yachtsmen from the Soviet era and yachtsmen from the modern era are tied to the FOLLOWING ANCHORS.
THERE IS A YACHT, THERE IS A TEAM, BUT IT'S TOO FAR TO YOU
We will arrange for you the place of unloading and loading of the yacht, the parking of your keelblock during the regatta.
Come to us by car with a trailer. So many people practice, even transporting 34-foot boats (Anton Timakov yacht "Columbus" regatta, Sevastopol; Oleg Tikhonov yacht "Amiga" 34 ft Saratov)
THERE IS A YACHT, THERE IS TIME, BUT THERE ARE NO OR NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE IN THE TEAM
Of course, we have sports, but still not a big professional, but rather amateur. Therefore, for a sailing yacht, as a rule, a team of 4 people is enough. Provided that two of them are in the subject of sailing.
We receive a small stream of people who do not have a yacht, with questions about participation in the regatta. Among them are both experienced and novice yachtsmen.
You pre-submit an application for participation. We are pre-selecting a team for you. To do this, we conduct a remote interview with the candidate, then recommend him to the captains (we have many years of experience in this).
Watch this masterpiece movie: https://youtu.be/Lmyc0WWKqT0
where the participants were partly selected into one team. Everyone is happy, and everyone was happy.
While the yacht was going to Togliatti for the regatta and back, a lot of people changed on board, thanks to which this film appeared.
THERE IS A YACHT, THERE IS A CREW, THERE IS TIME, BUT IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE FOR ME TO PAY ALL THE EXPENSES FOR A TRIP TO YOU.
Your new sailors, of course, did not participate in the spring preparation of the yacht for the season and will not take part in the preservation of the boat for the winter. They also didn't buy or build your yacht. These are not your relatives or friends at the first stage. Of course, participation in your team on board will be paid. From 10,000 rubles. the captain will receive on hand from each new member of the team (+ separately money for products for a beginner + money for entry fees for a beginner).
Finances only after registration of the yacht for participation in the regatta.
This amount will partially cover your financial difficulties to participate in the regatta.
If you have a sailing yacht of the Bavaria 46 type, with a hot shower, refrigerator, Webasto heating, with separate cabins for clients, and you have experience working with VIP persons, a captain-cook–instructor, if the interior of the boat is in proper condition, then, of course, we are talking about other money.
Previously, each captain who wants to take on board a commercial sailor needs to be interviewed by the commander of the regatta.
