Sail-World.com : Finn sailing opportunity for the world youth in Moscow

Finn sailing opportunity for the world youth in Moscow

'Action from the 2007 Finn Silver Cup in Moscow'    Robert Deaves/Finn Class©

Are you 21 or under? Have you ever wanted to sail in Moscow? Have you ever fancied having a go in the Finn class but never had the opportunity? Well here is a unique opportunity to do both.

The 2011 Finn Silver Cup – the Junior World Championship – is being held once again at the Moscow Sailing School, using its own fleet of Finns which are being generously provided free of charge to all sailors. It was last held in Moscow 2007 and attracted 50 sailors from 20 countries. Last year the event was held in San Francisco.

The regatta will be held from 23 to 30 July and will include the Moscow Finn Association welcome regatta, the 'Crystal Cup' as well as a two day training clinic with a former Olympic Finn sailor Paul McKenzie (AUS).

Everything will be taken care of by the organisers. For those who need a visa, this will be organised by the Russian Sailing Federation, there is a free transfer provided from the airport to the club and accommodation is even available at the club for just EUR 30 per day including meals. Other hotel accommodation is also available nearby.

The school has 60 complete Finns (except sails) from Devoti Sailing Ltd, which were bought for the 2005 Finn Gold Cup held in Moscow and they will be lent free of charge to the competitors at refundable deposit of Euros 400. Boats are only available in order of receipt of applications and though most have already been allocated there are some still available.

If you want to take up this unique opportunity, please contact the Moscow Sailing School below as soon as possible. The organisers would love to welcome sailors from other classes to Moscow and the Finn class.
