What the Volga does to a Yacht

Tainui is not looking her best. There is no doubt about that.  In Baltic ports like Christiansand and Kiel she would stand out a bit beside those rows upon rows of pristine Eurovision Song Contest caravans (I will not mention their names – Bavaria, Jeanneau and Beneteau). But here in Russia’s inland waterways, as in Newfoundland and Labrador, she is completely at home. And so are we.

 

When cruising you come across all sorts of boats along the way. The very best kept yacht we have come across in the last 8 years was in Cayenne, French Guiana. The miscellaneous  pictures below speak for themselves.
