Match Race in Sopot
The idea is to create the first in Poland and one of the most advanced match racing centers in
Europe through placing a stylish fleet of 5 Diamant 3000 yachts in the finest sea resort in Poland
- the Sopot City, with its rich tradition as the famous Bad Zoppot 80 years ago.
Match Race Center
The Sopot Match Racing Center will be located near the longest (more than 500m) wooden pier in
Europe - the Molo - which is a natural platform for spectators to watch the finest world match racing
(the aim is to organise two or three Grade 1, Grade 2 events anually, including Swedish Match Tour
in the future). In 2004 there will be 3 ISAF events organised (Grade 3 in July, Grade 2 in September,
Grade 2 in October) and a few fleet and promotional events.
From 2005 the Center will move to a brand new marina that is going to be sticked to the Molo.
The marina will be the Polish center of Baltic sailing. The fleet of five Dimant 3000 will be the
most modern fleet of offshore yachts in Poland, as the Polish offshore sailing is starting to grow now.
The Center is organised by the Sopot City, Polish Yachting Assocation and the Yachting Foundation.
The Foundation is represented by Przemek Tarnacki - skipper of MRM Match Race Team (40th on the ISAF
list, 5th on the 2003 MR Europeans), double World Champion in Micro Tonner, second skipper (after
Karol Jablonski) of the Polish AC Challenge POLSKA 1.
The project is is regarded by the Polish Yachting Assocation as the biggest offshore initiative in Poland.
All the sponsors and providers stress the atractivity of the place (during 3 months of summer holiday in
Poland the average of 60.000 people visit Molo every day!). Among the supporters of the initiative are:
sailors Karol Jablonski and Mateusz Kusznierewicz, President of the Sopot City and local politicians,
Yachting Assocation and the ISAF.
The biggest of the Polish media representatives are partners of the Center - through cooperation
with a renowned PR company.
