«Young skippers led by the founder of the Seanation sailing school, Alexander Babitsky, challenged» yachtsmen who claim that yachting is the prerogative of those who have been sailing since they were babies. This is how the provocatively named Another Fucking Race came about.

The Another Fucking Race is a race for aspiring and new skippers and their friends, and overall a great sailing event combining a regatta and a party.

The current, third edition of the regatta will be held in the waters of the Gulf of Saronic in Greece from November 3 to 10. The duration of the crossings will vary from 15 to 25 nautical miles or 4 to 6 hours. The flotilla will include more than 50 boats and 300 participants.

The uniqueness of AFR is that it is the largest Russian-speaking regatta for novice skippers at the moment.

For most of the participants, this is their first attempt at sea since getting their license.

Regatta AFR is held on modern yachts built by German shipyard Bavaria and no older than 2010. «The regatta-party format, where the competition part is combined with an entertainment and cultural program on the islands, allows participants to get the most out of their yachting career».

The cost of participation may vary from team to team, but the average cost is €700-800 per person.
