“L-6 today – one of the most accessible and relatively inexpensive opportunities to go to real sea sailing on a cruising yacht – says the President of the Association of class L-6, Andrey Berezkin. – The content of any yacht of this size, and especially the wooden yacht was built 70 years, is costly, both in repairs, and current expenses on Parking, services and storage. Most of the remaining “sixes” belong to yacht clubs, which provide for their yachts and free Parking. This significantly reduces the cost of the team, limiting their expenditure on the repair of yachts that when a large number (about 30 people) requires a relatively small financial cost to each team member. And of course, it should be noted a huge volume of work on these boats, produced by the team during the period of repair and preparation for the season, without which any wooden boats can not do. All this is valuable first and foremost young people and students – those who are willing to learn and work at sea, who have more time than money. On the deck of L-6 in the campaign in the Baltic sea, a young sailor will receive the same marine practice, which will never find in a Charter cruise in the Mediterranean”.
