Today One of the oldest regattas will be held in the Baltic Sea. A little more than two weeks remain before the start of the XXIV St. Petersburg Sailing Week (SPPN) and the Championship of Russia in the national cruiser-racing class of yachts “L-6”. SPPN is one of the oldest regattas held in Russia, dating back to 1898.

Like last year, the Russian championship in the national cruising-racing class of yachts “L-6” will be held together with the regatta.
