About smart and stupid

We offer you a review of Vasily Senatorov published in the September issue of magazine Yacht Russia, under the heading “From the publisher”.

Don’t know what it is, life experience or profession of the journalist, but me less and less confidence in the idealism of the idealists. And how many times had he promised himself, but not holding back…

The sail is now in Vogue. Especially in the escapists. According to them, ahtoska is a great tool to get away from the challenges of the world, sea crossing – the line between “right” and “wrong” life, and all who have children on a trip they took, – the adherents of the new reality. In short, the sail not only a WAY of LIFE, but also the only right! And only those will be saved from the filth and hypocrisy of this world, who will change the bustle of cities, the vast expanses of the ocean. And because this is a logical substitution made me take up the pen – all sailors are the heroes and apostles of the new Paradise on earth. Moreover, it has long been known in the West, and now we were lucky because got the free…

But what about the theft of stoppers and cropping files on the competition (a very common practice in the Soviet years) what to say about lies on the protests, how to interpret the fraud with documents and measuring of boats and sails? Where to put the captains, promising customers Paradise and extort from them a Euro or dollar for each additional tack? Where professional skippers engaged in the transportation of migrants? Who brought the sailors, stealing yachts for trafficking and transporting drugs?

After all, it is also people of the sea.

So it does not make the criterion for integrity of profession or strong hobby.

All, in my opinion, much easier. People are not divided into nationalities, parties, factions… People are divided into smart and fools, but fools already shared by other nationalities, at a party, faction, religion. Note to newcomers, this Maxim applies to seamen.

And the sea? It is and always will attract people. And we are lucky to meet there is less rogues and rascals.

Vasily Senatorov,
