2016 - The 24th ABCup Regatta
St Petersburg (Russia) - June 9th to 11th
This year again, the ABCup takes you to a legendary city, the gateway to eternal Russia !
Saint Petersburg (Sankt-Peterburg/Санкт-Петербург), is the second biggest and most westernized city of Russia. The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site… we suspect that a number of participants will want to extend their stay in order to make the most of their trip.
Above all, the ABCup Regatta is about competitive sailing and a nice fleet of Platu 25 will serve exactly that. The sailing arena is diverse and we expect to sail both in the Gulf of Finland and on the Neva river in front of the Peter & Paul Fortress… in the wake of the 2015 Extreme Sailing Series.
The ABCup is now close to a quarter of a century old! No match with the city founded in 1703 by Tsar Peter the Great, but, still, let's not be shy, let's make the ABCup sail its way into History.
