To good writing is surprisingly nice. And we it and got. So I decided to publish it.
Good day, dear editors! With joy and pleasure for a good mood in the beginning of the week and send you a photo and short report about the journey of the latest issue of YachtRUSSIA in the Mediterranean sea.
Together with the young cadets enrolled in the program, Bareboat skipper and VHF operator the latest issue журналаYachtRUSSIA passed 270 nautical miles!
During the breaks and during the rest from the watches the crew of the yacht Victoria (10-foot Bermudian sloop built in 1989, Bavaria 430) was given a fresh release…
Had three night transition, meeting with dolphins in the open sea, double-crossing borders (from Montenegro to Italy and back), 5 ports ( Budva, Herceg Novi, Kotor, Lustica Bay, Bari), watch with a full moon and shooting stars in the middle of the Mediterranean, the stunning beauty of sunsets and sunrises on the open sea when the shores cannot be seen and only occasionally other vessels.
The crew and the latest issue of the journal passed from Lustica Bay through Boka Bay into Kotor, then in Herceg-Novi, and then walked around the island of Mamula, a small rocky islet of round shape, located at the entrance to the Boka-Kotor Bay between the Peninsula Lustica and Prevlaka, where in the mid-nineteenth century the Viceroy of the Austro-Hungarian Dalmatia General Lazar Mamula was a defensive fortress built to protect Kotor Bay from attack from the sea.
Then sail to Italy, where the crew of the Victoria visited the Basilica of St. Nicholas (Basilica di San Nicola) in Bari, which was built to store the relics of St. Nicholas of Myra, patron Saint of sailors moved in 1087 from Myra. A strong and significant place for all sailors and travelers. After which the team returned safely to Montenegro for the exams.
P. S. have a Great week! And congratulations recent birthday – esteemed Vasily Senatorov and Arthur Grokhovsky!
