Today, on July 17, the yachtsman Yury Zhiradkov poisoned in a single campaign on a route Nikolaev - Ochakov - Belgrad.
As the single, this travel - the first stage of its round-the-world travel speaks.
- I plan to make this travel in a month, - the yachtsman tells. - Will have to overcome about 750 nautical miles. In September of last year I учувствовал in the international cadet congress in Moscow. There I met children with whom I graduated from suvorovsky school in the Far East about 40 years ago. Also there I got acquainted with representatives of foreign cadets, in particular with cadets from Belgrad whom gave up friendship. Here also I planned swimming to this city, to see acquaintances, also to transfer to the ambassador of Ukraine in Belgrad the letter from the mayor of Nikolaev and city symbolics. Travel is calculated on one and a half months. I will reach Ochakovo in a day. From Ochakovo under a sail across the Black Sea - in three days I will reach the mouth of Danube. And up across Danube of 1 200 kilometers it is necessary to go only by means of the motor. The motor bought new, made a running in, I assume that with it problems won't be. The Danube Current - 0,9 meters per second, it in nine times more, than in the Southern Bug. Cross-current of Danube - two, more than two knots. My motor gives out at most four knots. Respectively, upward I will go with a speed of two knots to hour
As Yury Zhiradkov tells, local authorities didn't render any support to him. The mayor Vladimir Chaika promised to support, but so anything and didn't leave. Therefore Yury had to occupy about 1,5 thousand dollars to go to travel to Belgrad.
- I will already repay debts in the winter, - the yachtsman notes. - Perhaps it is necessary to sell garage that to repay all debts. But the exit wasn't as the summer goes. But, however, the People's Deputy Roman Zabzalyuk supported.
