It is remarkable that on top of the Jubilee, Russian yachtsmen are celebrating another jubilee of 100 years since the first Olympic (bronze) medal gained by Russian sailors in 10-meter class at the Stockholm Olympic Games.
In line with the Jubilee celebrations the Russian Federation is planning to run various events. The official start of such events will take place at the International "Moscow Boat Show" which will be exposed at the main Crocus-Expo from March 20-25 2012. This will be followed by major regattas and National championships in Olympic, Non-Olympic, and youth classes of boats. Amongst them the "Sails of Russia" Festival will bring thousands of people out onto the water in every corner of the country. The climax point will be marked by gala-party "Yachtsman of the Year" in the December of this year which will be fully devoted to this solemn date.
Nowadays The Russian Yachting Federation as legal successor of the RPGS and on behalf of the ISAF is responsible for development of all branches of sailing in Russia. Together with ISAF and EUROSAF we do our best in promoting this fantastic kind of sport under the slogan "Sailing as the Way of Life"
