Fazisi: The Joint Venture
"This is the extra-ordinary story of Fazisi, a Russian boat of revolutionary design entered in the 1989/90 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race. The book aims to offer a dramatic account of how the "Glasnost" boat managed to complete the toughest ocean race in the world."
Race To Freedom
"Built in the Soviet Union, equipped with Western sails, rig and electronics, sponsored by Pepsi-Cola International and co-skipperd by American Skip Novak, [Fazisi] was indeed an intriguing mix.In the height of Michael Gorbachev's perestroika that not only changed Russia but also altered the entire order of the world, FAZISI with her international crew bravely challenging the most treacherous waters on the planet was, in a sense, like a proverbial dove sent into an uncertain future. Like perestroika itself, FAZISI was a bold experiment in survival..."

PYANA of NA invites you to a New Year's cruise around the Caribbean!
We will meet after Christmas on St.Thomas and sail out on December 30 toward Culebra and La Culebrita
In the New Year we will also visit the British Virign Islands to see the polish commemorative plaques for Wladyslaw Wagner.
We will return to St. Thomas on January 6 - and we can of course work together to plan out the voyage to meet our needs.
On the yacht there will be members of the old Fazisi crew from the prior year, so you can zamusztrowac earlier and stay for a yacht longer than others which, unfortunately, have to go back to work in New York.
The cost of staying on the ship is currently priced at $ 200 plus a contribution to the food which will determined separately. Our sponsor has provided us with the great Zywiec beer, which will allow us to survive pleasantly during the hot days and the cool nights of the Caribbean.
Everyone who helped with the renovation of the Fazisi will assuredly receive special benefits from the capitan.
****Be advised: As of 11/24/2015 all spots for the New Year's Cruise around the Caribbean have been filled. Please see above for new race information****
