On August 15-16 you could watch pirates boarding the brig "Triumph" on the Neva River. While there was a sea battle on the water, on land they knitted sea knots, tried on the world's largest vest for 14 people and watched a movie about the circumnavigation of the sailing ship "Kruzenstern". International Marine Festival finished with chic parade of sails with participation of beautiful historical boats such as gaff schooner "Nadezhda", gaff schooner "Lady Li", fisherman "Lucullus" and others. One more sailing holiday is ahead of St. Petersburg citizens - Extreme Sailing Series races. By the way, the catamaran of Gazprom Team Russia also took part in the sea festival, though not on the water, but on the shore.
