HOW TO SAIL ACROSS MAZURY? WITH PLEASURE! BELOW WE LIST EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW. THE LIST IS VERY SHORT:
1. How to sail safely?Toasts on the yacht are seated! First: for guests of honor, then, as tradition dictates, for those who are at sea. Sailors traditionally don’t knock on glasses, because with every clink of glass … one sailing soul escapes. The regulations on the water are as follows:
- Point 1. It must be safe.
- Point 2. It must be nice.
- Point 3. It must be comfortable.
- Point 4. End of the Regulations.
2. How easy is it to handle in port?Entering the port, the fenders must be hung up between the other units, so as not to damage our or other boat’s deck. Approaching the marina (port) you should call with information that you want to moor (a set of telephone numbers is available on the boat). The boatman will then steer the boat to the right place. If you cannot reach the marina by phone, enter the port and moor in an open place. Certainly, a boatman will appear and connect the boat to electricity, water, indicate sanitary facilities and a place of garbage storage and will charge a port fee. Important: when placing the mooring line on the poles (mooring bollard), place it under the mooring line / mooring lines of other yachts – so that you can easily remove each of them. A large yacht, and ours are not small, is best moored to the quay with the stern. Thanks to this, it will be easier to get on and off the yacht and the deck will remain clean. Remember to pull the fenders back out of the port and do not hang the laundry on the rail when you are sailing. Such a custom – things are dried in the port!
3. Well, we moor in the port…Before entering the port, prepare moorings, then hang the fenders overboard. We enter the port at low speed while maintaining full control thanks to the thrusters (we turn them on before maneuvers and turn them off after). We brake with the engine, never by foot, boathook or arms. We have no chance to stop a few-ton yacht with our own body!
4. And if we want to moor outside the port…At anchor you can stand anywhere in the lake, bay. We stand so as not to disturb others. You cannot stand on the navigable route, which is marked with red and green buoys. There are buttons to operate the anchor, it extends and retracts electrically in the bow. However, it is better to go ashore in ports, after mooring to a pier or quay.
5. Who has priority on water?Sailboats have priority over motorboats. In the region of the Great Masurian Lakes, priority is given to sailing ships of the Masurian Shipping over sailing yachts. Priority rules for boats operating on the engine are analogous to those on roads:
- you should move on the right side of the road (hence the order to turn right when sailing straight on yourself)
- the one coming in from the right has priority. But we advise, just like on the street, to apply the principle of limited trust!
6. What is not allowed in Masuria?On the Masurian lakes it is not allowed to:
- approach passenger and cargo ships, rafts or towing trains and attach to them to be towed;
- sail across a river, canal or navigable route on lakes as a passenger or cargo ship approaches;
- sail under sails on the canals and moor and stay near water structures, bridges, inlets and outlets of the canals less than 50 meters away;
- anchor on the navigable route.
7. How to understand the signs regarding the passage under bridges?A single yellow diamond is a recommendation to go in both directions, and two such diamonds vertically or horizontally is a recommendation to go in one direction (the transition from the opposite direction is prohibited).
8. What do buoys mean?It is safest to sail along a very well marked fairway intended for passenger ships. The trail is marked with three types of buoys:
- green buoys in the shape of a cone – we pass them on the left side sailing north (towards Węgorzewo) and on the right side when sailing south;
- red buoys in the shape of a cylinder – we pass the starboard side sailing north (towards Węgorzewo) and the port side when sailing south;
- round buoys in green and red stripes – means a fork / branching of the waterway.
