About us – Regatta for friends

About us

Travelling with us in more than just yachting

Hi !

We are Sinitsyns, Sergey and Nina. In the past, both of us were top managers of Russian and international companies.  Nowadays, we are people who can not imagine their lives without the sea and the desire to share the joy of the day’s breeze in the sails! What is interesting, it was the interest in yachting that connected us and turned us, two people,  into a loving family. Our family history began in 2009 on the first for both of us, crossing of the Gulf of Thailand on catamaran.

For five years already,  we have been conducting trips under the label «Regatta For Friends». We are planning and running sailing trips that turn strangers into friends. «Regatta For Friends» includes everything in itself  from  expeditions, dive regattas, races, picnics adolescent yachting adventures for the whole family to skipper training on the international level. «Regatta For Friends» is not only about the trips all around the world, but also about adventures that create a sense of family among our team-mates !

The most important idea of «Regatta For Friends» is that it is a club, a family of versatile, curious and active people, and we invite you to become a part of this family !

Top managers of the largest Russian and international companies and young parents, celebrities and scientists, teenagers and veterans of sailing – our club includes a variety of people, but they are all United by their thirst for new adventures, care for each other and mutual respect.

Taking care of yourself and others, being open to new things and being yourself are the main principles that we carry through all our travels, when selecting each crew, and this is what sets us apart from our competitors.

We are always paying great attention to details, trying to take into account all the nuances at each stage of preparation, within saving the indispensable spirit of adventure. At first glance, our values may seem like just beautiful words, but when you are in the sea with a few barely known people, you have to become a team to turn the voyage into an unforgettable memory, and make the crew members your friends for life.

Years ago, on the very first trip, when our regatta even didn’t have a name, it was attended by two crews and six participants. We were the captains ourselves with a team of four men who never sailed before. Already in the spring of 2015, there was a team of more than 50 people and nine crews that went on the journey with «Regatta For Friends» !

Our team consists of only certified skippers, experienced managers, camp counselors, and professionals, but most importantly, our team consists of good people who are passionate about their work and want to share their knowledge. We came up with a cool travel format, but every next trip helps us to make it even better — we listen and take into account your wishes. It is not an exaggeration to say that «Regatta For Friends» is probably one of the best opportunities to enter the amateur yachting, which is rapidly gaining popularity these days.

Contact us and we will meet you personally and choose a trip regarding your taste and goals. From trips for children and teenagers to serious expeditions for professionals. From classic regattas across the Mediterranean to the discovery of the fjords of Norway and the winding coasts of Iceland. From the big regattas to individual campaigns. None of our trips are like the others, but we can say with complete confidence that we will become good friends.
