The Nord Stream Race draws to an end, with Team Russia as the winners.

NSR12SP M9876A

The Swan 60 Fleet have finally reached their destination of Greifswald, ending the 750 mile journey of the Nord Stream Race. We began in St Petersburg, stopping at Helsinki, Gotland, and an unpredicted detour into Karlskrona (due to severe weather). But through it all, we had to have an overall winner to take home the trophy… and that winner was Team Russia!

Not only have Rusia hosted a new and exciting race (that shall mark its place firmly in the sailing calendar), but they also went on to win. Congratulations to everyone in Team Russia, and congratulations to the other competitors: Team Europe, Team France, Team Holland, and Team Germany.

771 Squadron based at RNAS Culdrose near Helston, provide Search and Rescue cover across the South West; 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. They carry out over 200 rescues a year, often putting their own lives at risk, from sailors plucked to safety from their storm tossed vessels to rescuing swimmers, surfers and cliff walkers in difficulties around the region’s coastline.
