About Yacht Club

Seven Feet Yacht Club (SFYC) was established in 2000 on the basis of small Vladivostok sailing club. Now it is one of the biggest in the Far East of Russia. There are about 300 members and 100 pupils of sailing school.

Sailing season in Vladivostok lasts about 5 months – May – beginning of October.

We organize up to 20 events per year including ice-sailing.

The rule of the club is to have more sailing yachts than motorboats in the marina.

Thus more than 70 sailing cruising yachts are moored or stowed on cradles in the yacht-club. Among them are 25 – 50 foot Yamahas, Beneteaus, Farrs, Dehlers, Dufours etc. A large monotype fleets of Konrad 25Rs and Platus 25, which are  the most active racers in our region.

The commodore of Seven Feet Yacht Club and its founder Mr. Mikhail Ermakov is an active sailor, yacht skipper and owner and the vice-president of Russian Yachting Federation. His main idea of existing the club is having a junior sailing school.

Sailing school (for children)

There is a sailing school attended by the local children of 8 – 21 years old. They sail Optimists, Cadets, Lasers, 420s and 29ers. The school works round the year: training on the water and competing in the events from May till October; gym, swimming pool and class-room lessons in cold season. Also Ice Optimist and DN International for those who can’t wait till the ice melts and would like to sail also on the skates. 

Sailing school (for adults)

There is a big union of adult sailors - members of the club. They take part in the sailing events and other activities of Seven Feet Yacht Club.

We organize sailing courses also for the adult people who would like to start sailing. They can take a course of theoretical and practical lessons as crew members. Also they can start learning to be qualified as a skipper one day.
