    Registration fee is $300 for the week which in the past has included opening and closing ceremony dinners, lunches on the water during practice and race days and morning coffee each day. Registration must be received by Nakhodka by June 1, 2020. Registrations received after that date will incur a late registration fee of $50 making your total $350 for the week. We normally submit all fees in a single draft to the host team and thus money will be collected after your acceptance to the team.

  • Travel Documents


    To enter Russia for any purpose, a U.S. citizen must possess a valid U.S. passport and a bona fide visa issued by a Russian Embassy or Consulate. It is impossible to obtain an entry visa upon arrival, so travelers must apply for their visas well in advance.
