Atlantic Challenge Russia

Who are we?

We are into sea. We are At­lan­tic Chal­len­ge Rus­sia as­so­cia­tion. We do not on­ly sail and row, but also buil­d and re­pair our bo­ats - cap­tain's gigs - with our own hands. Each sum­mer we or­ga­ni­se boat trips and trai­ning camps. Eve­ry other year we par­ti­ci­pa­te in At­lan­tic Chal­len­ge In­ter­na­tio­nal Con­test of Sea­man­ship.
