Why the Azov Sea?
- The cheapest way to try yachting

Yeisk is called the “mecca of windsurfing”: every day breeze winds blow here, which allow to train at all times and will help you quickly understand the settings and control of a sailing vessel, even for those who sail for the first time. Don't forget to bring your windbreaker.
- Sailing at home
We are used to thinking that to do yachting you have to go abroad and pay a lot. But we travel to the Azov and White Seas, to Kamchatka. Let's travel around the country and try something new.
There are six full days of training in the waters of the Azov Sea. Every day we will meet at the dock at about 10 am and start with a little theory and safety briefing. Then we will go to sea in a trimaran until the evening. We will see the Yeisk spit, the Bird Island and go out to the open sea.
The instructor is Alexander Tsukanov. Alexander is an experienced racer, skipper and engineer with over 30 years of yachting experience. He participated in major Russian regattas. Alexander assembled the trimaran on which our trainings take place with his own hands.
