J/70s sailing Moscow, Russia 
(Moscow, Russia)- PRO Yachting Moscow announces that the Moscow Royal Yacht Club will be starting a new series of evening regattas on their fleet of a dozen J/70s.   

The Royal Yacht Club, located in the Dynamo Water Stadium just west of Moscow’s Red Square, will now provide more opportunities for sailing. The PRO Yachting Fun Race is designed for young teams, novice helmsmen, and novices to participant in evening races on the lake that is convenient to downtown Moscow.

“We decided to organize a series regatta, where it will be interesting for novice skippers to learn how to race, the only qualification being that you have to know how to sail. In addition, this will also be a good opportunity for absolute beginners to get acquainted with sailing in comfortable Moscow conditions on our flat water lake,” said Mikhail Kondratyev, General Director of PRO Yachting.

The regattas will be held every Thursday. Sailors should meet at the Royal Y.C. for the 1800 hrs skippers and team meeting, then the start of the first race will be by 1900 hrs. We will sail as many short races as we can get in by sunset!  Learn more about PRO Yachting’s Evening Learn to Race Program on J/70s here
