They were joined by the yacht-club “gals” and “Walnut Cove”. There was a sense that all sailors of Moscow came to water: wait has delayed the start of the season! This, of course, contributed to the excellent Sunny weather – the strong easterly wind, the gusts blowing up to 20 knots, allowed to squeeze out of boats high. The race distance has divided the area into several zones where you could meet and an impressive fleet of “uh-OK”, GP26, SB20, Platu 25 and even a bevy of “Optimists”. Not far behind, and gracerichy in conditions of closed borders, many have turned their attention to affordable suburban yachting.
We’re happy to say that the racing season 2020 in the suburbs is open!firstseason
