RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET
Armed with international credentials a local company is positioning itself to make Torrevieja the preferred option for Russia’s sailing enthusiasts.
Serenity Sailing School’s owners, Richard and Anna Plaster, will visit St. Petersburg early in October. There they will introduce Torrevieja International Marina as an opportunity to take up sailing as a recreational sport.
Their eleven Royal Yachting Association (RYA) accredited courses begin at novice level to Yachtmaster. They also cover related subjects such as Powerboat, VHF Radio, Day Skipper and Yacht Master theory courses. Anna says, “We are well equipped for Russian speaking students including teenagers. It is important that their certification is internationally recognised.”
Serenity Sailing, based at Torrevieja International Marina, believes that there is no reason why recreational sailing on the Costa Blanca should not be as popular as is golf in the region. She adds, “We are actively engaging with Russian sailing schools and lifestyle media. Torrevieja is perfectly placed to become a recognised base for the Russian Federation’s sailing enthusiasts. We now have a dedicated Russian desk with Russian-speaking liaison staff.”
