Going up the Dnieper River

Has anyone taken a yacht up the Dnieper River? How far is it navigable before having to take down the mast? What are the main challenges? Any advice much appreciated.

Re: Going up the Dnieper River

I grew up boating on that river as a kid. There was a lot of commercial traffic back in the day and the river is navigable all the way into Belarus. Here is the list of all bridges from the government agency:
It looks like you might be good with the mast up until Kherson. I think there are some sailing/boating clubs in Kiev and Odessa and you can contact them for local knowledge.

The scenery is nice but not spectacular however there are several major cities along the river you might find interesting. Also there are 6 or 7 hydro dams you have to lock through between Kiev and the Black Sea.

As far as challenges, I would expect a lot of red tape, language barrier and lack of infrastructure for private boats.

Re: Going up the Dnieper River

Sounds like possibly an interesting adventure. If I donít make the Puddlejump this spring, send me a message for possible crewing. Mexico is too hot late in summer.
