 jazz est465

Eteläisessä naapurissa on seulottu esiin vuoden 2013 avomerimestarit.

Ihan tiiserinä mainittakoon, että Virossa on myös ORC4 luokka. Ja kisakalustokin on upeaa, kuten yllä olevasta kuvasta voi päätellä.

The 56. Moonsund Regatta established new offshore sailing champions in three classes: ORC, ESTLYS and Folkboot.

Moonsund is the longest established offshore sailing event in Estonia. This year’s regatta hosted a 113-boat fleet with crews and more than 700 sailors hailing from Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia. The regatta set sail on July 14 in Haapsalu and proceed through the ports of Heltermaa, Kuivastu and Pärnu towards the final destination Roomassaare. The new offshore sailing champions were determined in six different races of the week-long regatta that included both shorter circles and one through-the-night offshore race. Each class raced its own courses ranging from 161 to 257 miles.

The regatta was successfully completed by 110 boats, just three had to quit before the end – the regatta took its toll in two masts and one helm. In the beginning there was some search for the breeze but as the event progressed the winds kicked up to 11-12 knots giving sailors great competition in fairly good weather with lots of sun and just odd rain showers and overcast skies. The evenings in harbours were high-spirited and with lots to enjoy for both the crews and local people. The Moonsund Regatta proved once again that it is not just a celebration of great sportsmanship but also a festivity for all fans and well-wishers.

The award ceremony took place on July 20 in Roomassaare. The last evening was exhilarating and in festive spirit. The event was summed up by Egon Elstein from Estonian Yachting Union, Kalev Vapper, Commodore of ESS Kalev Yacht Club, Jüri Sõber, Commodore of Pärnu Yacht Club and Priit Kuusk, Member of the Board of Saaremaa Merispordi Selts. PRO Aivar Laus rendered thanks to all crews and sailors and Adomas Janulionis from a Lithuanian boat Loké spoke for all foreign guests expressing their gratitude for fabulous regatta atmosphere and the well-organised regatta. All champions and their boats were awarded beautiful and elegant glass trophies by artist Agnes Torm.

Information Manager of the Muhu Väina regatta, Piret Salmistu said: “Several ORC-class boats will race the seas in Sandham at the ORC European Offshore sailing Championships in August and many other local regattas in Estonia but all of them will be eagerly waiting for the 57th Moonsund Regatta in 2014!”
