from russia with love
We are fans of Anarchy in Moscow Russia, have been following stories and articles sent by anarchists for more then 2 years. Your site is very popular and even advised by our Russian Sailing Association. We’ve noticed that there is little information about sailing in Russia. We really have a lot what we can and would like to share. Though our sailing season is quite short just 6 months we have a lot of sailing events and regattas, mostly every weekend.
We race on picturesque Pirogovo lake. Our yacht-club fleet consists of Dragons, Finns, Micros, 2.4s, Lasers, Optimists, Cadets, SB3s, Folkboats, and National class eM-Ka. Rare class of boats. The team of Pirogovo yacht-club once developed a new boat on base an old class. eM-Ka is a sport keel 8,9 m yacht of international class. It has been designed in 1929 by a Norwegian yachtsman Anker. Sailing rig – sloop. The yacht can carry a spinnaker. It has no handrails. The class was a part of Olympic program from 1948 to 1972. After 1972 it started loosing its popularity. Now we are trying to give it a new life. More then 30 boats are taking part at Russian Championship in this class. – Anarchist Natella.
