About the organizers
I have connected my life with Baikal more than 25 years ago and want to share with all yachtsmen the emotions that we experience each time we get to this amazing place.
How did we come to this idea? Me, Stanislav Pechenkin, have grown on Baikal and now I’ve become the ideological organizator of the regatta. 10 years ago I started to travel all over the world and participated in many international races. There is huge number of beautiful places. Everyone has something unique for yachting. But for me, Baikal is a special unparalleled place, which gives you great energy and amazes by the power of its nature. Talking with yachtsmen all over the world in my journeys, I’ve understood that many of them are very interested in my stories of Baikal. So that’s how the idea was born. In 2016 I invited sailors from Moscow to our local races. They were so impressed by Baikal that wanted to come back next year. So I’m sure that BSW regatta will become a new good tradition for every yachtsmen. By the way, my previos project of organization ice sailing races on Baikal has become one of the significant events in this sphere after the European and World championships in ice sailing.
I hope that Baikal Sailing Week will be a good challenge for strength, knowledge and skills for everyone.
