The river’s natural two-knots current and the varying winds – with some really hard ones blowing from the west – make the event an extra interesting one. Skills, endurance and tactics will be key aspects to secure the win.

The fleet will be racing with the world renowned Palace Embankment, the Winter Palace and the Peter and Paul Fortress in the background, situated between the Troitskiy and Drovtsovyy bridges.
