Preparing for the Championship of Russia in the class DN and Ice yachting championship of Russia in the classroom, “AR” and «DN» on Lake Baikal is in full swing. The dates of the competition in April 2012 6.2.
For the success of the Championship of Russia were united efforts of the Russian association of DN, WFTU and the FPS of the Irkutsk region. Not forgotten,  the younger generation,have a parallel Championship of Russia will take place in the class, “DN” and “Ice Optimist.” The organizing committee has been active in preparing for the Championship.
From February 1 site Radni open bidding company. As of March 12 received applications from 43 participants.
WFTU, at the request of the FPS of the Irkutsk region, these events contributed to the PAC (single schedule) of the Ministry of Sports and the All-Russian Calendar WFTU.
The idea of ??the Russian Championship on Lake Baikal.
Until 2004 all championships of Russia in the DN class conducted mainly in St. Petersburg. And only occasionally buerista 01.02 from Siberia could afford to come to this championship. This creates unequal conditions for riders from the western and eastern regions of our country and led to a significant imbalance in the qualitative and quantitative development buernogo sport in the region. To remedy this situation the Russian Association of class «DN» (Radni) decided to alternate the venue for years Championships and Cup of Russia in the European and Asian parts.
This year, the Cup of Russia held in Moscow and Siberia takes the championship. It is usually held in the cities, are actively developing buerny fleet - Novosibirsk or Bratsk. But due to the unstable weather has always loomed a threat to the terms of the planned program of racing or competition in general. Something similar happened in the just concluded World Championships buernomu sport in the class “DN” .
Our country has a unique platform for competitions in sport buernomu - the legendary Lake Baikal. However, delivery of the material of the racers on Lake Baikal is associated with certain costs. WFTU has proposed to fund all the logistics costs of shipping the material part of the European part of Russia to a place of competition. FBS Irkutsk region supported this initiative and agreed to take on organizational issues on the spot.


Thus, in this year’s championship of Russia will take place in the waters of the Small Sea (Lake Baikal). This place has unique conditions for the conduct buernyh races. The ice in the spring it freezes up to six meters thick, and is stable until the end of May. And, most importantly, there are practically no snow cover, it is regularly blown away by CAPM - a strong wind, coming down from the mountains. Races can be held in April, when in other places buerny season has ended. Is not unimportant and that the daylight hours at this time lasts about 10 hours.
Legendary Commander Europe Wim Van Akker said: “Paradise buerista - a place where the ice is at 10 degrees.” That place turned out to Small Sea Lake Baikal. In this we were able to make successfully conducted in this area in April 2011 Asian Cup.
Cup of Russia in the class of ice boat «DN» 2012 will take place on the lake in the waters of the Small Sea (Lake Baikal) near the camp site “Uyuga” from the 2nd to 6th April.




Planned visit of President RYF G. Shaiduko, President IDNIYRA Jörg Bonn and representatives of the British Association of DN, riders from Switzerland, Finland and Germany. Results are expected to participate in the competition for more than 60 bueristov.
