In May 2018 I was trained for a power yacht with “Regatta for friends” under the guidance of captain-instructor Sergey Sinitsyn.
Sergey was recommended to me by friends who went with him on a sailing expedition to Cuba in the autumn of 2017 and were very pleased.
The individual approach, the schedule taking into account my mode of work, training and rest, and a professional attitude were important to me.
In the process of training, Sergey managed to transfer not only practical skills – management, boat mooring, knowledge of the law of the sea and good maritime practice, but also the basis for decision-making in various situations at sea and parking sites. The classes lasted from early morning until the exercise was completed. In addition to professional qualities, I want to note Sergey’s personal qualities – attentiveness, perseverance, and impartiality in evaluation.
According to the results of the exam on the international system and my own assessment of acquired knowledge, I proudly call myself a captain.
With confidence I recommend Sergey Sinitsyn and the “Regatta for friends”. This man with his love for the sea and yachting inspires to further develop and improve relations with the elements. In the near future: Sailing practice and the Transatlantic transition.
