Yacht regatta will visit Liepaja
30 june, 2017
On the evening of July 1, Liepaja Marina will be visited by OLD CASTLE harbour regatta, which is organised by Klaipeda Yacht Club. Regatta will start and finish in Klaipeda. It is planned that Liepaja yacht port will be visited by around 20 yachts. Karlis Kints, Manager of the Liepaja Marina, points out that although the weather is quite cold, this will be the biggest number of yachts at the same time visiting the yacht port since the opening of this season.
It is planned that yacht regatta OLD CASTLE will start in the morning in Klaipeda, but in the evening will finish in Liepaja. As explained by Karlis Kints, Manager of the Liepaja Marina, it is hard to predict at what time first yachts will appear at the gates of the Port of Liepaja. If the weather, including wind, will be favourable, it is planned that yachts will arrive in the time period from 21:00 until 23:00, but already in the early morning yachts will sail back to Klaipeda.
Karlis Kints also pointed out that hard work is being done in order to atract other regattas in the future.
Active season in the yacht port is from April until end of September. Currently it is the peak of the season and yachts from Germany and Lithuania are visiting, as well as from other countries, such as Italy and Norway.
KARLIS KINTS, Manager of the Liepaja Marina: “Of course, yachts from Germany and Lithuania are dominating in the Port of Liepaja, but geography is quite extended. Yachtmen especially appreciate the fact that Liepaja Marina is located in the center of the city and it is easy to walk around on feet for sightseeing. Huge interest is also about Karosta, because upon arriving in the Port of Liepaja, golden cupolas of St. Nicholas Orthodox Sea Cathedral is one of the first sights, which creates interest about this part of the city, even for those who have not heard about it previously.”
- Liepaja Special Economic Zone Authority took over the management of the Liepaja Marina in May 2015. During the season in year 2016, the yacht port was visited by 334 yachts.
