The historical sailing and rowing multidiscipline competition on captain’s gigs and 6-oar yawls “Bublic Race” (“Donut Race” in Russian) was held in the Gulf of Finland last Sunday.
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 the sails were put up for the first time at the 54-gun ship-of-the-line of the 4th rank “Poltava” in a testing mode. The sails were swaying against the backdrop of the Lakhta Center. All the 10 sails with the total area of 1000 square meters were put up for the first time at the reconstructed sailing battleship of the time of Peter the Great “Poltava”.
After a confident win in the most important all-Russian regatta, Sergey Komissarov shared his plans to prepare for the new Olympic season.
The international Optimist class regatta OptiOrange Valencia is publishing the Regulation on the Regatta and announces that applications for participation can be submitted. The competitions will take place in Valencia on March 5-8, 2020!
