The AFR regatta 2020

The AFR regatta is a race for beginner skippers and their friends.

This is an ideal format for practicing sailing skills for both novice captains and team members. This is a large-scale sailing event combining a regatta and a party. This is a trip as part of a flotilla with an active social life in marinas and mutual assistance in any difficult situations at sea and offshore.

Since 2020, all races will be accompanied by a technical boat with qualified servicemen. Any breakdowns can be fixed in real-time.

AFR is not only a regatta but also a music festival. In 2020, several Russian rock stars will perform. Concerts and jams will take place every night.

The length of crossings / races is from 15 to 25 nautical miles or from 4 to 6 hours.

The route is approximate and depends on the weather and wind direction.
