18.11.2011 Stanislav Tryzna: The Storm in Adriatic. How We Acted. Part 2
Stanislav Tryzna: The Storm in Adriatic. How We Acted. Part 2  “Pass the Helm to Stas”     Trying to avoid spontaneous tacking I bore away. Keeping high speed I had the possibility to meet collapsing crest by the bow, the strongest part of the hull. The rest of the momentum was enough to control the boat, to put it back on the course and to increase speed again. I did not care about race. My only wish was to reach the Italian shore safely. The shore to the South of the city Otranto protected from waving well. Later on recalling that storm I caught myself thinking that looking at the lights in the night where I was striving I did not care about what was the state there, what kind of political regime there, what kind of people live thereor wh...
 
 
11.11.2011 Stanislav Tryzna: The Storm in Adriatic. How We Acted
Stanislav Tryzna: The Storm in Adriatic. How We Acted  May 28, 2000. The yacht “Alciona” started in sailing race Rimini-Corfu-Rimini. This is the route along the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The bend signal was on the cross-cut of the lines connected different landmarks on the shores of Albania and island Corfu. The distance was about 800 miles.   The skipper and owner of the yacht is famous Odessa yachtsman Mikhail Petukhov. I was his co-skipper. There was four of crew at all. I would like to tell about men which taught and are teaching me on to navigate. I will do that by small notes while telling about certain events and situations. For the moment I would say about Mikhail Petukhov. He is a bright example of real yachtsman who uses yacht fo...
 
 
10.11.2011 Stanislav Tryzna: “The Height of the Wave Does Not Matter For the Yacht Damage Control”
Stanislav Tryzna: “The Height of the Wave Does Not Matter For the Yacht Damage Control”   I learnt that I will circumnavigate in a year after my arrival to the Black Sea Yacht Club (Odessa) as a crew member of the yacht “Aiya” in March 1994. During this year I understood that the main point for the safe life under sail in the sea or ocean is the damage control in severe gales. Afterwards due to the offshore passages I discovered numerous various problems concerned seafaring. But in my next articles I would like to deal with those moments when the damage control begins in consequence of the developed waving of the sea surface.   Partly it is narrated in the book “Heavy Weather Sailing” by Adlard Coles. I would say all written there is correct. The special place in all the publications, reports and ...
