A sail trip on Syamozero-lake

The Syamozero (Syam-lake, because the Russian "ozero" denotes a lake) in Karelia is a great lake near the Petrozavodsk city. It is about 30x10 km of size and is oriented from north to south.
Our first trip on Syamozero lake in 1982 was the first one with the use of my self-made sail catamaran with inflatable floats. (In 1982, such boat was not to buy in Russia.)
We were only two with my father, both - old canoe paddlers and sail amateurs. The weather was graciously for our trip: some years later I tried to repeat the route with another team, but it was impossible because of continuously storms.
