The Volga River section of our website is no longer accessible here. Tainui’s Russian travels are now the subject of a book which will shortly be available through Amazon. Later, an E-book version will be available from this website.
Partly based on our award-winning blog, which won the Cruising Association’s 2014 Lacy Award, “Sailing Through Russia” is more than just a personal account of our trials and tribulations en route however – it is also a detailed guide for adventurous yachtsmen who may follow in their footsteps. Essential reading for anyone interested in the Volga River, this cruising guide it is unique. It is unlikely to be superseded for many years.
We have published “Sailing through Russia” ourselves. It will be available after 1 September 2016 through Amazon, Arthur Beale in London and Morkniga in Moscow.
