Tall ship races and regattas


Sailing yacht Karedzhi was built in Saint-Petersburg (Leningrad) in 1969. She is a classic wooden 12-meter racing cruiser yacht of the L-6 class. During 47 years of her racing history, “Karedzhi” participated multiple times in high-level offshore regattas in the Baltic Sea region. Under the leadership of Captain Yuri E. Funtikov “Karedzhi” and her crew  became prize-winners of the Baltic Sea Cup several times in the 1980’s.

In the early 2000’s the yacht was overhauled and renewed. Nowadays “Karedzhi” is crewed by an experienced and ambitious team, as well as by young sailors and trainees. In 2016 “Karedzhi” achieved good results in national sailing competitions and won prizes in many of them. Now we are going to make the next step and participate in The Tall Ship Races for the first time.
