Fashion race with a minimum crew and got to our Northern latitudes. Today in Germany launched a premiere of a new regatta Baltic 500 – race “four hands” around the island of Zealand.
At the start of the regatta in Kiel – unexpectedly for the organizers – came from nearly fifty boats: specifically, 49 boats (50-I’m a registered yacht at the start). They are divided into three divisions: Mini 6.50 (10 yachts), ORC Club (34 boats) and Yardstick (five boats).
Conducting this regatta, the Germans, incidentally, are going to test the inclusion of such competitions in the official calendar of “miniks” two years later.
