Amazing things happen in St. Petersburg! Passions are – Shakespeare! And, most importantly, around the sails. We understand what it is.
And help us to understand the two posts (which we will give with small reductions) that are published on his page on “Facebook” Natalia Fedorova. Man she is highly reputable in the past – the main coach of Russian national team in sailing, and now the Director of the Sailing school “Krestovsky island”.
Here is the first post Fedorova:
“Soon the elections of the governing bodies of St.-Petersburg sailing Union. I have not interfered in the activities of the Union, but now, as Director of the GOS. Schools have no right to stand aside… Yes, I believe that the Alliance needs new ideas, abilities, resources. Healthy competition, in my opinion, the only benefit of the organization. I allowed myself to speak out in support of Alexei Semenov is an alternative to the current government candidate. And then it began…
Application for membership of the Union from our leading athletes, coaches, parents of athletes was blocked. Together with them were blocked at the entry of declarations of members of the Association СБ20, Santer 760, “marine classes”, yacht-club “Nevka”, River yacht club of trade unions, etc. etc. They are all CONSIDERED “stuffing” (waste, garbage…) – alignment, according to the calculations of leaders ceased to be in their favor.
Outraged by this state of Affairs, we – those who are left behind – decided to come to the next meeting of the Bureau, to ask what we were objectionable to the Union… Being honest (read naive) announced his intention to some members of the Presidium. The reaction was not long in coming. On the page in FB (which, by the way, for the official notice just funny) was published an official announcement – the Bureau declared CLOSED! The Presidium of the PUBLIC ORGANIZATION was closed by its members!
I called the current President of the Union Alekseev Sergey Pavlovich to clarify – do not mistake it? I had categorically stated – “STRANGERS we do not let the Presidium of the PUBLIC ORGANIZATION of SPPS”!…
Five points! What is it now…? 300 athletes, 22 coaches, administration, parents… fuck you all… where? State budget institution “Sports school on sailing “Krestovsky island” with all its achievements in favor of the city and the country – FOREIGN…?!!
Reserve the right to openly fight for the rights of the School, which lead, to defend the rights of those who believe in me. All indifferent to the fate of the sailing of St. Petersburg, are encouraged to join!”
And now for post number 2:
“The entrance to… the Bureau was guarded more seriously than the currency bars in the USSR. Guard face control, in General all as is necessary, so that no one enemy is not leaked. But it’s because the lyrics.
And it all began…
One day in mid-November there was information that Mr. Ljubomir V. A. ordered the parents of child athletes Academy to join the HGA. All were brought into the Secretariat of the Union, about 160 applications at once. The news quickly spread through the community. It is not necessary to be seven spans in a forehead to understand what is happening. This pump design votes using the parent resource Academy has previously been successfully tested on the Association of the Optimist class.
Here here hats off to Mr Alexandrovich, long ago, there is nothing that unites St. Petersburg yachtsmen. Many communities were traditionally ignored the entry into sailing Union, has decided not to stand aside. All to the meeting of the Presidium on November 21, there were more than five hundred (!) statements from members of yacht clubs, class Associations, yacht, sailing schools and sailors without belonging to anyone. And, it would seem that the leadership should be happy for such popularity of the organization.
But this seems not to be caused. And caused a whooping calculations, one of the presidential candidates, how many potential supporters. After the meeting of the Presidium, it was announced that the Union of the order of 990 members.
And then began quite inexplicable.
For starters, was quickly classified lists of members of the organization. Access to them was closed even the Secretary, whose duties include direct work with them. That is, the access lists were only the incumbent President (also, I should note, the candidate for this position for the next term). What happened in the period from 21 November to 9 December we can only guess, but on 9 December it was announced that the members of the Union to take anybody will not. It follows from this that, apparently, everyone had to accept, now accepted as a necessary balance of votes restored? In favor of this version says also that on the podium on 21 December it was announced that active members in the Union already 1700! No comment…
I only have one question: can anyone explain what it was, for what it all what have we come to?”
From edition Yacht Russia. Passion see for yourself, and really seething serious. And all this is due, as rightly observes Fedorov, that February 1 should be held report-election conference of the St. Petersburg sailing Union. Candidates for the post two – the current President of SPPS Sergey Alekseev and Alexey Semenov, the candidate who filed the Russian Association of class SB20.
Here the unexpected appearance of a competitor, apparently, caused a stir (it would be better, of course, to use more hard word) in a manual SPPS – especially that previous elections were uncontested. The fact that the meeting of Presidium of Federation – public organization. suddenly made closed from prying eyes and ears (!), otherwise as scandalous will not name. The opposing side in response, of course, did not remain silent.
The Montagues and the Capulets St. Petersburg sails exchanged prickly statements. It came to mutual accusations of plagiarism. What will happen next? After all, before the report-elective conference more than a month!
SPPS is one of the largest and most important sailing organizations of the country. But it, of course, and demand to be special. It is obvious that the cause of the current scandal in SPPS in the dissatisfaction with the sailing of the city public activity of the Union, the desire to give his work a new impetus.
Whether the current leadership of SPPS headed Alekseev to include other speed – or, as it is now, will rely on the administrative resource? Can the team, led by Semenov, to convince the electors that the future for her?
I want to emphasize: we are in Yacht Russia strongly condemn the denial of access for members of the WFTU at the meeting of the Presidium of the HGA. Decisions taken at this meeting should be canceled. It is necessary, in our opinion, to hold a new meeting of the Presidium in the presence and with the participation of all stakeholders. Finally, I hope that your opinion about this egregious situation will Express to the President of the all-Russian sailing Federation Vladimir Silkin.
Edition Yacht Russia will continue to closely follow events in St. Petersburg.
