Tavatuy Sailing Team (Russia) – skipper Pavel Kuznetsov (Russia), tactician Yevgeny Neugodnikov (Russia).

For those who are just beginning to be interested in sailing, let us specify: RC44 is a racing sailing yacht of small displacement, equipped with powerful sails. The class was created by the legend of the America's Cup, Russell Coots (hence the RC in the title) and the Slovenian designer Andrei Justin.

Everything else will tell, so to speak, in the process. In the meantime, let's put an end to this, informing us by tradition that we will follow the races – and, of course, root for ours!
