Have fun and give a helping hand to people in need? Easy!

Saint Petersburg Yacht Club organizes a charity race within the framework of RS:X Youth World Championship. We invite everyone who loves windsurfing and kiteboarding, as well as our small sportsmen at Optimists and Laser yachts
Fundraising Goal
Our goal is to collect no less than 1 million rubles during this charity event. We will pass on the money to the AdVita Charitable Foundation, who has helped people with oncological diseases for many years.

The upcoming charity race will be the first-ever for the Yacht Club. Its main objective is to attract attention of the sailing community to the charity.

All the entry fees will be passed on to the AdVita Charitable Foundation. The winners of the races will give the prize fund of the charity regatta to the people in need.

We are waiting for the sportsmen, racing in four classes – Techno and DNK windsurfing classes, kiteboarding, Optimist and Laser.

Application for participation in a charity regatta
I cannot participate, but I want to help
Anyone can support the initiative of the Yacht Club. Just make an internet transaction during the race or participate in the charity auction.

We are collecting money during the RS:X Youth World Championship from August 4 to 10 in the racing village near the water area of the 300th Anniversary of Saint Petersburg. You can also make an internet transaction to support us.

The money will be used to pay for the accommodation of oncology patients, who have come to Saint Petersburg from other cities to get the treatment. After a long-term treatment, many people do not have money to pay for the accommodation and the charitable foundation can help them with it.

Come join the race and help people!
