Sailing for Dummies: Communicate with Me __.__

Signal flags are used to communicate messages, at times because radio silence is required.  

The International Code of Signals (ICS) is an international system of signals and codes for use by vessels to communicate important messages regarding safety of navigation and related matters. Signals can be sent by flaghoist, signal lamp ("blinker"), flag semaphore, radiotelegraphy, and radiotelephony.

Международный свод сигналов предназначен для связи различными способами и средствами в целях обеспечения безопасности мореплавания и охраны человеческой жизни на море, особенно в тех случаях, когда возникают языковые трудности общения.

Sailing for dummies: introduction 2

There is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
—Water Rat to Mole, Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
— Поверь мне, мой юный друг, что нету дела, которым и вполовину стоило бы заниматься, как попросту — попросту — повозиться с лодкой, ну просто повозиться, ну просто…

Saling for Dummies: introduction

It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins, the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it — we are going back from whence we came. 

У каждого из нас, в наших венах, есть одна любопытная биологическая особенность - процентное соотношение соли в нашей крови такое же, как в океане, и потому соль есть в нашей крови, в нашем поту, в наших слезах. Мы связаны с океаном. И когда мы возвращаемся к морю, чтобы любоваться им или отправится в плавание, мы возвращаемся к тому, откуда вышли. 

—John F. Kennedy

Bringing Omega 28 from Helsinki to Tallinn, 4 April 2013

It was 4th of April 2013. The navigating season has not started yet. The spring was late and it was seriously cold still. But nothing stopped the real sea-wolves from bringing this Omega 28 from Helsinki to Tallinn. It was the first sailing boat to arrive to Old City marina in Tallinn that spring.

Tallinn bay cruise: 13 July 2013

Sailboat cruise is a fun alternative way to celebrate a special day: birthday, anniversary, bachelor party, casual event for business partners or off the beaten track trip for tourists. Admire Tallinn view, relax, feel the wind in your hair and splash into the blue waters of Baltic sea.

This Tallinn bay cruise started at the Old City Marina, right in the heart of Tallinn. During the sailing it was all just party-party-party for girls. We stopped in front of Pirita beach, where the girls could swim and sunbathe. On our way back it was a time for an afternoon nap for some, while others had a coffee break.

Lohusalu 2 day trip, 7 Sept 2013


Lohusalu marina welcomed its guests once again. The beginning of September 2013 was still very warm and the sea breeze was very gentle. We had an amazing time sailing the Omega 28 yacht from Tallinn to Lohusalu and back the next day.

Lohusalu marina offers all modern facilities. Guests can also enjoy BBQ grounds and sauna.
