Moscow’s Wealthy Push the Boat Out

To get a better idea of the yachting phenomenon, all you have to do is make your way out to the third annual Moscow Yacht Festival, which opened Thursday and runs through the weekend. On either side of the Andreyevsky pedestrian bridge crossing the Moscow River to the south of Gorky Park, several dozen boats, from 40-meter super yachts to speed boats, sparkled in the summer sun Thursday at the temporary jetties set up for the event.
