The Sailing Regatta of St Petersburg University is a competition between universities from all over the world. This year’s participants are young yachtsmen from universities in China, Great Britain, Belarus, Lithuania and the Netherlands, as well as over 20 teams from Russia. They all, including the experienced participants in the alumni race, gathered in St Petersburg to compete in the regatta.
