The initiators and the main "engines" of the winter races in the Melges20 class are Valentin Zavadnikov, co-owner of Synergy team, and Kirill Podolsky, head of the RUS7 sports club. The first season is successful: crews from Russia, Italy and USA participate in the regatta. At the last stage, a crew from the Czech Republic joined the races.
