The inhabitants and visitors of the Northern Capital familiarized themselves with the sailing sport each Thursday from June to September 2019 within the framework of the Series of evening regattas for amateurs “Kommersant”. All in all, 12 regattas took place during the season. The organizers of this sports competition for amateurs were Saint Petersburg Yacht Club and Publishing House “Kommersant”, General Partner – Megafon Company, Technical Partner – M-Marine.
“Driving a yacht is a like a swiss clock, which gears, be they big or small, must work in concert. It is incredible, when each millimeter, that you win, helps you outperform a competitor’s yacht by half a hull. During the race, we had to grab each other by the collar from time to time to avoid falling over the board. Under such circumstances, the borders between the top managers and employees are eliminated,” Director General of PJSC Megafon Gevork Vermishyan commented.
“We are glad that we could open the road to yachting for more than 200 participants of our regatta, PR Director of Saint Petersburg Yacht Club and host at Match-TV Alexey Zhirov says. – Despite all the difficulties with the weather in the Northern Capital, we managed to organize 12 exciting sports events. I am convinced that the participants will continue to sail and enjoy the freedom drive, and speed, which are an integral part of any sailing race.”
The sailing regatta “Kommersant” consists of no less than three races. The crews of the yachts, led by professional skippers-instructors complete the route, trying to finish earlier than competitors.
“I think that any beautiful business marries perfectly with the sailing sport, beautiful people are in accord with the sailing sport, - Director General of Publishing House “Kommersant” in Saint Petersburg Maxim Efimov says. – We are very much satisfied with the results of this year and happy that more and more people are joining our project.”
