Participating in a round-robin format followed by a championship/ repechage elimination ladder, teams from Russia, Ukraine, Latvia and Germany participated. The first day of racing was nearly perfect-- plenty of breeze blowing up to 15 kts and lots of sun. Everyone had fun both on the water and at the beaches watching the racing inside the breakwater of the old fishing harbor.
In the end, the teams all pronounced the regatta a huge success and the music/ jazz session as OTT (over the top)! A special "thanks" goes out to Elena Otekina for the fun photos taken of the event.
