A regatta is a sailing yacht competition consisting of a series of races. Participants are part of the yacht crews. The task of the crew is to cover a given distance according to the rules of sailing races, in which an experienced skipper-instructor will help you. Crews start at the same time and strive to finish earlier than their rivals.
The main prize of the Wednesday Night Race series will be a valuable prize.
The regatta is held on J / 70 class yachts. These yachts are interesting to experienced yachtsmen due to their high-speed qualities, as well as to prepare for international starts.
At the same time, the yachts are perfect for those who are taking their first steps in sailing: J / 70 is stable on the water and is easy to handle. What is important for beginners - these are keel yachts, which means that they are almost impossible to roll over.
The regattas are held in Moscow on the territory of the Royal Yacht Club, located at the Vodny Stadium metro station. It is convenient to get there both by public transport and by car.
Take sports clothes that do not restrain movement - you can change clothes on the spot. We recommend that you check the weather forecast in advance - as a rule, it is a little cooler on the water and you should dress warmer. Shoes should be comfortable, and, of course, no heels.
If it is very hot outside, we recommend taking sunscreen, a cap, and sunglasses.

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.
