Realising the basic principle of 'Connecting Baltics through Sports', each stopover includes a busy schedule of meetings and events for business people and sports fans. The inshore races courses will be set in iconic places so that fans and guests can follow the action from the shore.
Only the best teams from the National sailing leagues of Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia qualify for the Nord Stream Race.
Every stopover the biggest yacht clubs of the country host the participating teams.
Gazprom is a general partner of the Nord Stream Race along with Nord Stream AG as a partner. Clothing partner – Marinepool. Technical support for the regatta - SAP and SailTracks. Fleet support and maintenance – Nautor's Swan. The Nord Stream Race is organised by St. Petersburg Yacht Club.
