«Regatta for friends» invites you to become a part of a great international team consisting of people who miss the sea and sails. Our participants are from Russia, Italy, France and other countries.

We are going to enjoy an amateur race on sailing yachts in the Mediterranean: around the French island Corsica. Will you join?

Sailing race at the highest level

What is awaiting us: daily sailing race, where each of you is an irreplaceable crew member. At the end of our journey, the top three teams will receive cool prizes! We always pay particular attention to safety precautions. We love the excitement, but safety and yachting for pleasure – that’s our real credo!

Positive vibes and many new friends

“What about relaxation?” – you may ask. It is the part of the program! Races will be held in the mornings, and the afternoons will be devoted to communication between participants from different countries, swimming, parties and picnics. It will be exciting, fascinating, we will have a lot of fun!

We are sure that the most valuable thing is communication with interesting people, and there will be many of them! It’s our tradition to build carefully each team by the selecting approach participant for the race. Each yachtsman of the “Regatta for friends” is part of the team, a bright personality with a fascinating hobby and an active lifestyle, enthusiastic and full of energy. It would be difficult to enjoy the life on a yacht differently.

Join us now! Special skills are not required, our captains will teach you everything in the process and during trainings. There are still places in the crews. The main things you need are desire and positive vibe! You can also assemble your crew and book a boat with our help.

Since the crews will be international, knowledge of the English language is your advantage, so you can feel comfortable and could communicate with all participants.
