Yacht Club

On August 9, 1967 white sails of yachts appeared on the mirror-like surface of the Kuchurhan estuary. They became the first sailing ships in the MSSR. Thanks to enthusiasts, sailing in the town developed rapidly, and from the mid-1970s, yachts­men of Dnestrovsk regularly participated in all­ Union regattas. Young sportsmen and women from Dnestrovsk became champions and prize-winners of the USSR, and adult yachtsmen and women did not lag behind. In 1985 the crew of the crui­sing yacht “Elektra”, consisting of Moldovan HPP workers, won the Black Sea Cup.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union the yacht club temporarily ceased to exist. The revi­val of sailing began in 2010, and the club reopened a year later. Today it has at least 40 yachts of various classes. Like 50 years ago, the estuary hosts regattas dedicated to various fes­tive dates.
