WMRT Match Cup Russia 2017

Host venue

St. Petersburg, Russia

The World Match Racing Tour will visit the Russian city of St Petersburg for Match Cup Russia as its Northern Europe stopover. With a tight race area and stunning city centre backdrop the event is set to be a sailing marvel for the people of St. Petersburg and for the rest of the world watching at home.

With the Winter Palace to the south and Vasilievsky Island to the west the racing will take place in the heart of St. Petersburg at the foot of the historic walls to the Peter-and-Paul Fortress. Sailing so close to the shore will guarantee spectators a grandstand view over the full racecourse from all angles with an unparalleled setting within the city centre. The event village will be situated on the beach in front of the Peter-and-Paul Fortress with the M32 catamarans landing on the beach after racing each day, giving fans unparalleled access to the event, the sailors and the machines they race on.

The 10 Tour Card teams will be joined by the top two qualifying teams at Cape Crow Cup and Swan River Match Cup, as well as two wild card teams and two further qualifiers from a World Tour level event in the week leading up to the Championship level event.
