For the second consecutive year the Sailing Federation of the Chechen Republic driven by Khasan Khadzhiev will organize a regatta in a high mountain lake – Kazenoy-Am 2019 in Chechen Republic of Russia! The Sailing Federation of the Chechen Republic was established December 2016. On 5–9 July 2017, the Federation carried out one of the highest-altitude sailing events in the history – the first regatta in the North Caucasus on Lake Kezenoy-Am, 1870 m above sea level.
The event this year is to repeat the success of the previous year and to be held again on 23-28 of July 2019. The regatta is sailed on SB20 sailboats with a crew of no more than four people. About 24 crews are going to participate, some Top Russian sailors have already registered!
The sailors will be fighting for valuable prizes – the challenge cup of Kezenoy–Am, a reward of about 16.000 EUR and a special prize from the race partner – Hamilton, a well-known international watch brand.
