Summer gives a fine opportunity to enjoy the vast water of Tatarstan and feel like the captain of a ship. In Tatarstan, two facilities operate where you can learn yacht steering and take a ride in a motor boat.
The Locomotiv yacht club is the oldest in Kazan. It runs a sports school for kids, while adults are also taught by experienced instructors. Additionally, aquatic equipment can be rented. The yacht club arranges sailing and motor yachting tours in Kazan and along the Volga and Kama rivers, sightseeing trips, participation in the regattas, corporate retreats, romantic outings, fishing, and swimming.
The Republic of Tatarstan Federation of Sailing offers courses for training captains and yacht steersmen meeting the all-Russian Sailing Federation standards. A choice of three programs is given - the "Day sailing yacht helmsman", the "Coastal navigation yacht helmsman" and the "Coastal navigation captain".
