SEVASTOPOL, August 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s national centre for training yacht crews is scheduled to open in the Black Sea port city of Sevastopol, Crimea, next year, a local sports official has told ITAR-TASS.

“I do hope that next year we shall be inviting yachters from all over the Black Sea coast and our friends and counterparts from other countries,” said Oleg Vechirko, the chief of the youth and sports affairs department in the government of Sevastopol.

On Friday, Sevastopol saw the opening ceremony of a week-long yachting contest and festival, called Sailing Week. The chief judge, deputy president of the All-Russia Sailing Federation, Vadim Mekhanikov hopes Sailing Week will become a national event as early as next year, gathering athletes from yachting centres across the nation.

The sailing festival in Sevastopol harbour will feature a parade of yachts, crash courses in yachting skills for passers-by on the waterfront, gala shows and a firework display.
