The first regatta BAIKAL Sailing Week 2017

The first open sailing regatta on Baikal – Baikal Sailing Week 2017 – was arrenged, seems to us, successfully. Participants from different parts of Russia and CIS gathered on the regatta.

After races all departed with mild sadness about finishing of so interesting journey. And even gathered in Irkutsk for afterpaty, not wanting to let theese warm and bright emotions go.

Baikal this year was very welcoming and hospitable. Sunny weather and mild stable wind were for all days of the regatta. Even the water was not so cold as usual at Baikal.

Specially for the BSW regatta the Cup of the Baikal Sailing Week was created. It will keep the names of all the winning crews, gradually growing in its base. The first signature for the foundation has already laid!
Congratulations to the winners and look forward to next year.

Organizers plan to make little changes in the route of the sailing week each year in order to give the participants a possibility to discover new places for this “fifth ocean”.
