It was signed by the honored sailors of the country, the participants and winners of the Olympic games, world and European Champions.
We have been unable to get a comment from the management of the River yacht club, but also ready to give the floor to the other side of the conflict.
According to the editorial, the situation in River yacht club is critical and it requires public permission to the management level of the city. The country is at risk of losing the oldest and biggest yacht club in Russia, which has become one of the business cards of St. Petersburg.
Below is the full text of the appeal:
Director CHU, “St. Petersburg River yacht club of trade unions” Epishin, V. A., refused the command of the yacht “Dream” honored captain K. G. Boykova
The leadership of CHU “Saint-Petersburg River yacht club of trade unions” allowed an unprecedented degree of rudeness that violates the concepts of humanity and morality, against Konstantin Gavrilovich Boikova, the first yachtsman in the country, received the title “Master of sports of international class” in a race, cruising yacht, a resident of besieged Leningrad. In navigation 2020, he was refused command of the yacht “Dream”.
Konstantin Gavrilovic came to the Central yacht club in 13 years – in 1949 – and all these years have been devoted to it. Already at 21 years of age he received the title of master of sports of the USSR on the long voyage and became a yacht captain, and later fulfilled the norms of master of sports in sailing races. In 1975 Konstantin Boiko, the first Soviet sailors were awarded the title of USSR master of sports of the international class for racing abroad. It is the 12 – time medalist and winner of all-Union competitions “the Cup of Baltic sea”, champion of Baltic regatta in Tallinn, a five-time medalist and winner of Muhuwesi regattas in Estonia, a five-time winner of International regattas in Poland.
Besides the sports achievements should be noted and active public work Boykova for development of yachting:
From 1955 to 1961 he was Chairman of the sailing section of the Polytechnic Institute;
1956 – 1961 – member of the Board of the sports club “Politekhnik” (22 sports);
1956 – 1961 – Chairman of the city’s sailing clubs “Burevestnik”;
1961 – 1996 member of the city Commission of the Qualification;
1962 – 1990 – Cruising the Chairman of the city Commission;
1956 to present.time – member of the Board kapitalbetrages yacht club/River yacht club of trade unions, 1985 – 1994: Chairman of the Board of captains of the yacht club;
1962 – 1990 member of the Presidium of the sailing sports Federation of Leningrad;
1976 – 1996 – a member of the cruising Committee of the Federation of sailing sports of the USSR.
In 1983 he co-authored a textbook in sailing “School of yacht captain”. With the participation of K. G. Boikova prepared state regulations, were published training manuals on the training of qualified sailors. Now dozens of experienced sailors with gratitude I pay tribute to the captain of Bicouse practical knowledge and skills gained in sailing under his command on the yacht “Kama”, “Solveig” and “Dreams”.More than 20 sailors, sailing on yachts with Boikova K. G., became masters of sports of the USSR, and more 30матросов, team members Boikova K. G.,later became a yacht captain.
Konstantin Gavrilovich – engineer, laureate of the USSR State prize “For achievements in science and technology”, which has 36 inventions and patents. His drawings produced thousands of models for various needs of the national economy, including high-precision machines for the manufacture of miniature parts for the aerospace industry. For more than 50-year-old bright professional activity, marked by awards and medals, he miraculously always found time and strength to the beloved sailing.
On “the Dream,” captain Sears and his team go back to 1986, and all this time, contain a yacht in splendid condition, investing huge labor and money in its maintenance and repair. Of substandard yachts team did a great racing boat without any help of trade unions, on which balance it is. This is just one example of selfless service to sailing yachtsmen of the NGO “Sports team sailors, the St. Petersburg River yacht club”, this year celebrating 160 years of its Foundation.
Classes help the captain sail Boykovo to maintain excellent health, brilliant pass all the medical Board and to lead an active sailing and social activities. Each year the yacht “Dream” continues to regularly take prize places in city competitions, and he is free to conduct theoretical studies and to write educational and historical articles.
Now coming to the end of June, and in fact the entire period from autumn to spring, like all previous years, Konstantin Gavrilovich repaired “Dream”, with his hands preparing it for the season 2020. Is this navigation we let him stay on the shore?
As in mockery, K. G. Boykova proposed to become a “captain-coach”, without the right of conclusion of the contract and with strange features, one of which is riding on the champion’s yacht and guest service epishina V. A. and V. G. Derbin
There is a violation of the rights of Russian citizens to exercise contained in the Constitution, another episode of persecution of a team of athletes River yacht club, a petty revenge for refusing to support a project of commercial development of the last of the public yacht clubs of St. Petersburg authorized by the Chairman of the “Leningrad Federation of trade Unions” Derbigum VG
This also includes the exile of the Council of captains RAK of buildings built by the city for the Olympic games 80-go year for boaters. The next step was the expulsion of the NGO “Sports team sailors, the St. Petersburg River yacht-club”, uniting 400 of the leading yachtsmen of the city, generally with the club and the creation of pocket “sailing Federation of Saint-Petersburg”, the founders of which included the leadership of the trade unions and CHU. And the whole sailing fleet is transferred to this Federation, and the sailors proposed to join it. In case of refusal of sailors destined to the command of the yacht “Dream”.
We encourage the sailing community to pay attention to current, in every sense unjust, the situation, and the management of the responsible organizations to immediately stop violating the rights of boaters and sailing to destroy the fleet RAK!
The yacht club is the people themselves, consisting in supporting it and the sailing tradition, and not managers, traders, who believe that unable to dispose of the destinies of the captains.
