The SCF Black Sea Tall Ships Regatta 2014 ended on 25 May. Such regatta has been held since 1956, but this year the majestic vessels raced under the Russian flag for the first time. The regatta was an excellent opportunity to promote the Black Sea coast and develop Sochi's Olympic infrastructure already from the sea. We'll see how Tall Ships influenced the image of "our shores" abroad. But we had a decent regatta: Russia wasrepresented by four Class A ships: "Mir, Kruzenshtern, Sedov andNadezhda. The latter won the race in the sporting category.
Regatta of large sailing boats took place on the Black Sea
