Evening regattas from PROyachting for the prize of the Swiss watch manufacture Ulysse Nardin started in Moscow.
The Moscow company PROyachting, based on the territory and in the waters of the capital’s Royal Yacht Club, has been holding a series of evening regattas since 2013. Anyone can take part in them: a beginner or an experienced yachtsman, individually or as part of a team. Many teams that are now competing at Russian and international championships started their way to yachting right here, at the Vodnoy Stadium.
This year’s season of evening races, for obvious reasons, started later than usual, but the regattas schedule remained the same: every Tuesday – Tuesday Warm-Up Race, every Wednesday – Wednesday Night Race, and on Thursdays – PROyachting Fun Race.
Ekaterina Skudina, co-founder and ideologist of the PROyachting project, assured that despite all the difficulties this year, everything was done at the high level usual for the project.
Such regattas provide an excellent opportunity to take a breath after a working day and enjoy the sun setting on the water against the backdrop of snow-white sails.
At the end of the season, the champions of the evening regattas series will receive the coveted trophy – the Ulysse Nardin watch. The history of Ulysse Nardin, which began 170 years ago, is inextricably linked with the sea. And today the company does not forget its roots: Ulysse Nardin supports sailing around the world. Thus, the company acted as the official partner of the Swedish team Artemis Racing in the 35th America’s Cup.
The award ceremony usually takes place at the end of the season as part of the annual PROyachting. Person of the Year ”, where the company celebrates people and projects that have made a significant contribution to the development of yachting in Russia.
