Unfortunately, due to the situation with COVID-19, the regatta in 2020 was canceled.
The largest offshore regatta in the Baltic Sea, Nord Stream Race, has been held by the St. Petersburg Yacht Club with the support of Gazprom PJSC since 2012. The motto of the regatta is “Sport unites the Baltic”. This mission of sport uniting people became the main idea behind the development of the Nord Stream Race, and its implementation has been pursued throughout the existence of the regatta.
In keeping with the basic principle "Sport unites the Baltic", each stop includes a busy schedule of meetings and events for business people and sports enthusiasts. Coastal racing courses will be located at iconic places so fans and guests can follow the action from the shore.
Only the best teams from the National Sailing Leagues of Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Russia qualify for the Nord Stream Race.
Teams on stopovers will be received by the best yacht clubs in the country and will be able to take part in events organized by the Nord Stream Race.
The route of the regatta is 1000 nautical miles. The Kiel - Copenhagen stage is 150 miles

Yes, of course. There will be an experienced skipper and team members on the yacht. They will give you a role and teach you everything you need to know to be a useful team member and feel comfortable.
Yes, all team members will definitely try themselves in different roles to better understand each other. Standing at the helm is an integral part of training for beginners as well as setting sails, and helping the team during moorings.
As a rule, participants in the regatta live on the yacht. The boat has everything you need for a comfortable stay: nice beds, a kitchen, a shower with toilet. If you do not want to live on a yacht, then you can arrange to stay at the hotel onshore.
The crew decides altogether what kind of food they prefer to eat and makes necessary purchases. Simple dishes can be cooked, usually taking turns. Some regattas offer daily meals and intensive evening program for all crews.
We can make an invitation for a visa, but you need to apply for a visa by yourself.
Most people tolerate some seasickness easily. If you feel that you are starting to feel sick, it is best to get at the steering wheel or tune the sails. Get yourself busy, show your body that you don’t have time to get sick, you have to fight for victory in the race. There are also many quite effective medicines from sickness. If you start taking them in advance, then the probability of seasickness is almost zero.
Before each trip, we organize an online meeting where participants get to know each other and the captain. The captain will answer all your questions. The crew will have a group chat so you can get to know each other before the start of the regatta. Then you will meet in the marina.
The main rule is to dress comfortably and according to the weather. Clothing: • windbreaker and pants or shorts; • shirt/jacket with UV protection (thermal underwear and fleece); • adjustable hat/cap; • gloves. We recommend to purchase a long-sleeved jacket with UV protection in order to protect yourself from the sun and strong wind. Yachting shoes should be: • light, with non-slip white outsole; • with the fixed heel; • with a tightly closed nose. During the sailing without shoes, you can fall or injure your fingers and feet on the deck. There are many protruding parts on the boat that are easy to catch. Unfortunately, even experienced sailors are not protected from unpleasant injuries when they ignore this simple rule.
