Atlantic Challenge carries over to 2021
International competitions in sailing and rowing all-around Atlantic Challenge Contest, which were to be held in St. Petersburg from August 1 to 9 of this year, are postponed to 2021, the press service of the St. Petersburg Sailing Union reports.
This decision was made by the organizers of the competition, the Yacht Club of St. Petersburg together with ACI Trustees, in view of the global situation with the coronavirus Covid-19 and taking care of the health and safety of the participants.
“The yacht club of St. Petersburg will look forward to the participants in the summer of 2021 in our city. We are sure that all teams will usefully spend their time for training and preparing for the competitions, ”the official resources of the event say.
The Atlantic Challenge is an international project in which young people in different countries go to sea on captain’s gantry – copies of the 17th century sail and rowboats that they build with their own hands. Every two years, all teams meet at competitions to compete for the Atlantic Challenge Cup and other prizes, for example, the Seamanship Award – an award for a high level of marine practice. The first Atlantic Challenge was held in 1986 in the United States.
