This is one of the most popular and spectacular local events, organized by the Chupa Yacht Club, with the participation of yachtsmen from Karelia, Arkhangelsk, and of course the Murmansk region and Kandalaksha itself.
Location: Monastery Cape, just east of the city. The event begins July 1 at noon.
It will be the fourth “The Sails of Kandalaksha” regatta this year.
The highlight of the happening is the race from the Monastery Cape to the Labyrinth – one of the major local attractions – and back. Weather permitting it will start at 2:30pm on July 1 and last for three of four days.
The event includes performances by folk singing groups, historical reconstruction, and lots and lots of artisans/souvenir sellers, some of them presenting unique high-quality items.
