season in this year guarantees the true power of sailing emotions. Two weeks after the
official opening of the sailing season at the marina in Świnoujście (08.06), a sporting
rivalry between yachtsmen participating in the 26th Days of
the Sea Regatta (22-23.06) will start. This event is organized by the
Polish Navy Yacht Club „Kotwica" branch in Świnoujście.
At the beginning of July (30.06.-05.07) will
take place a new sailing event for the lovers of sailing challenges - the 1st
Bakista Cup, that is the Regatta on the West Pomeranian Sailing
Route (Regaty po Zachodniopomorskim Szlaku Żeglarskim) - legs:
Świnoujście - Kołobrzeg - Darłowo - Dziwnów - Świnoujście. It is hosted by the Stowarzyszenie
Euro Jachtklub „Pogoń" under the patronage of Association of Ports and Marinas
(Związek Portów i Przystani Jachtowych), Local Tourism Organisation of the West
Pomeranian Sailing Route (Lokalna Organizacja Turystyczna Zachodniopomorskiego
Szlaku Żeglarskiego), and the West-Pomeranian Yachting Association.
The regatta calendar could not do without the next
edition of the Etapowe Regaty Turystyczne (In-port Sailing Races -
Tourist Regatta) hosted by the West-Pomeranian Yachting Association, the starting date of which is
scheduled for July 20, 2013.
The second month of summer holidays
in this year will also be a unique one. On 3-6 August, more than a hundred sailing
ships participating in The Tall Ships\' Races with
the final port in Szczecin of the biggest regatta will arrive to the Capital of
the West Pomerania. But there is no better vantage point to watch the ships
than the beach in Świnoujście and Western breakwater. And there
will be a lot to admire! About twenty of the largest and the most impressive
vessels of \'A\' category of ship classes, such as Russian MIR, SEDOV, KRUZENSHTERN, Mexican CUAUHTEMOC, Norwegian CHRISTIAN RADICH, German ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT II, or
Polish DAR MŁODZIEŻY will sail through Świnoujście. Those, for whom
only viewing on the tall ships is not enough, are invited to visit SAIL
ŚWINOUJŚCIE on 15-18 August. During the event, there will be an opportunity for anyone
interested in participating in a two-hour cruise on the open sea under full
sail, and for more courageous persons - a day long sail on deck of a beautiful Russian tall ship - SHTANDART. SAIL
ŚWINOUJŚCIE is an event
organized as part of the international agreement - Baltic Sail, but more
intimate in its nature than The Tall Ships\' Races, however also
providing positive impressions - tall ship cruises, admiring the Tall Ships
Parade by viewing it from breakwater at the „Wiatrak" or the light show seen from
seats of the 40-meter high Ferris Wheel!
Collateral to the event, almost within the
same period, there will be held the 13th Unity Line Regatta,
during which are more than a hundred of sailing ships from Poland, Germany and
Scandinavia participating, and the Baltic Single - Handed
Polonez Cup Race; while during the first days of August, the Wiatrak Regatta will be organized.
