After many months of planning, re-planning, and making adjustments due to travel restrictions, the Nord Stream Race is finally ready to welcome the 2021 fleet to the starting line. The Nord Stream Race began in 2012 with the mission of “connecting the Baltics through sport.” This 1000 mile race starts in Kiel, Germany, and finishes in St. Petersburg, Russia, with stops in Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Helsinki.

 The 2021 race features teams from five countries with 60% of the sails under 30 years old. Teams from Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Russia qualified for the event by winning their respective country’s National Sailing League. Each of the five ClubSwan 50s carries a four sail North inventory. Since 2017, North Sails has worked closely with the event to produce identical sets of sails for the entire Juan K-designed fleet.
