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.
