The races will be held on 1st and 2nd of September on NEW SV20 sailing boats for crews of FOUR-FIVE people equipped with a jib, mainsail and gennaker.

The Match Race is a dueling race conducted on two identical boats in equal conditions for both crews. The outcome of the match depends solely on the skill and cohesion of the team. The task of the team is not to cover the distance in a shorter time, but «just» overtake a single rival, so this race is one of the most dynamic and spectacular. There is much more fierce contact fighting and maneuvering than in fleet racing. The match-race format, in particular, is the oldest and one of the most prestigious regattas in the world, the America's Cup «» .

The regatta will consist of two racing days, each with three stages: full round-robin, or group round-robin, semi-finals and finals. The winner of each of the racing days will receive a prize of 50,000 rubles from itBoat. The main trophy, the SV20 Match Racing Cup, will be drawn between the teams that participated in all stages.
