Crimean rowing bases: today and tomorrow

Аfter a trip to the region, Vladimir Parfenovich and Yuri Khudoba provided detailed information on the state of the bases and their proposals. It became clear what is happening and what is required for the development of rowing.

Recently, a delegation from Russia visited the peninsula of Crimea. Its representatives investigated all rowing bases and areas that can or are related to rowing. It is known that athletes can already act on the general basis at the Championships and All-Russian competitions, and be selected for the national team. “We hope in the near future to finance and bring rowing bases in order,” – said the source of information.
The base is located on a reservoir in the area of ​​the Black River. The reservoir passes into the bay of Sevastopol and does not freeze in winter.
The school has coaches who strive to preserve the existing traditions and bring up a new generation of rowers. In the past, the base was a place to train world-class athletes. Among the pupils are champions and prize-winners of the USSR and the Ukrainian SSR, winners of the championships of these republics. In particular, the silver medalist of the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul rowing and canoeing, three-time world champion in kayak Sergey Fedorovich Kirsanov, was preparing for competitions.

The rowing base can be used by national teams of sports schools and subjects of the Russian Federation. The location is suitable for training and training in the autumn-winter-spring period. Currently, the rowing base is in a dilapidated condition. There is no electricity, water supply, sewer system.

Proposals for the rowing base:
1. Acquisition of the two-storey building “Kalamita” standing under the rowing center, which is equipped with all the necessary communications;
2. Allocation of territory near the “Kalamita” and the regional beach – for the construction or erection of modular buildings on it, which will be used for the needs of the rowing base.

Necessary steps to improve the sports school:
1. Equipment by motor boats, boat motors, rescue equipment;
2. Equipment with modern sports equipment and simulators;
3. Reconstruction of the coastline (pontoons and jetty);
4. Equipment training and racing boats.

Currently, the rowing base in Arshintsevo (Kamysh-Burunskaya Bay) is destroyed and does not function.
In the area of ​​the Zaliv Shipbuilding Plant, the Arshintsevskaya Spit (“Rybkosa”) and the Nymphei Road there is a rowing canal 3.5 km long. For the last 10-12 years, the location has been used by the national team of the Republic of Belarus in rowing in canoes and canoes for sports training in the autumn-spring period.

Suggestions:
1. Construction of a rowing base on the canal, namely at the intersection of Tankistov Street, Arshintsevskaya Spit Street and Nympheiskaya Road;
2. Inviting coaches from regions of the Russian Federation (proposals are already being received);
3. Equipment with simulators and other equipment necessary for training.

Rowing bases in the village Zhelyabovka Belogorsk district and in the city of Dzhankoy

In these locations there are kayak and canoeing departments from the Simferopol sports school and coaches.

Suggestions for both bases:
1. Equipment by motor boats, boat motors, rescue equipment;
2. Equipment with modern sports equipment and simulators;
3. Reconstruction of the coastline (pontoons, pier);
4. Equipment training and racing boats.
20 km from the city of Simferopol among the Crimean Mountains is the village of Zuya, and near it there is a lake about 2 km long (the “Zuya Sea”). The Balanov reservoir can be used by national teams of sports schools and teams of constituent entities of the Russian Federation for training in spring and autumn. In this location there is a stone building for living, a dining room, a sauna and a room for the gym, but the condition of all these objects leaves much to be desired.
Not far from the city there is a lake about 3 km long, suitable for training. In Saki, the rowing base of the Dynamo Sports Society is open and functioning; the coaching staff of the Simferopol Sports School works. However, it will not be superfluous to attract additional coaching staff in rowing and canoeing.

Saki city is a health resort. On its territory there are mud baths, dispensaries and rest homes. There is an opportunity to spend all year round on the rowing base recreational activities, competitions in rowing and canoeing. It is assumed that difficulties with the organization of food and accommodation of participants will not arise.

Nearby there is the territory of the former municipal sports school, which currently has no construction sites. Thus, in the future, it is possible to develop and equip this place from scratch, to adapt it to the needs of the Crimean rowers.
