Nord Stream Race |
The largest Baltic offshore Nord Stream Race has been organized by Saint Petersburg Yacht Club with the support that Gazprom Company has been providing since 2012. Following the pipeline that has given the race its name, today the Nord Stream Race connects five Baltic countries: Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia. From the main beginning 13 countries have participated in the Nord Stream Race including the UK and China.

The Nord Stream Race motto is "Connection Baltics through sport".
The best yacht clubs of the National Sailing Leagues from the Baltic countries are invited to the Nord Stream Race. The race's schedule combines offshore legs with in-shore races.

With its great heritage today the Nord Stream Race continues to develop. Following the offshore racing trends, for now the Nord Stream Race is the only Baltic offshore that is raced on one design ClubSwan50 boats. Therefore the victory can be achieved only by crew's skills but not due to any technical advantage.
Here is the reason why the Nord Stream Race silver trophy is so desirable in the Baltic region.
This year the best yacht clubs of the National Sailing Leagues from the Baltic countries will come together again for the seventh edition of the Nord Stream Race which is going to be held from 24 June to 6 July.
