You're reading: Kyiv Yacht Club sails downwind
Popular
on social media

The Kyivan
club in Osokorky district just turned 45. Founded by several private yacht
owners who didn’t have a place to moor their boats, the club is now the
nation’s biggest non-state organization. It is run by some 200 members,
representing three generations of yachtsmen, owning about 200 vessels of all
shapes and sizes.

Yachts hold
many surprises for the inexperienced. The 9-meter long boat Kupava, for
instance, looks tiny compared to ocean sailing cruisers. But the yacht,
designed and built by 62-year old Yuriy Bondar two and a half years ago, is
known for being the sixth Ukrainian boat to have sailed around the world.
