Baikal Ice Sailing Week 2022 – What to know?

We received the following leaflet from Joerg Bohn G-737 & Dideric van Reimsdijk S-867 about this season’s Baikal Ice Sailing Week.
March 2022 will mark the 11th occasion that the event is held at Lake Baikal, Russia with sailors participating from all over the World to compete at the Asia and Baikal Cups, the Russian Championship or to sail for pleasure. This year we are also looking forward to having guests from China.
Please read the What-to-know-2022 manual carefully.

Tiit Haagma 1954-2021

Via Mihkel Kosk C45 and Ron Sherry US44.
Estonian DN sailor, Tiit Hagma C10, passed away peacefully at home on 28 May 2021. Tiit won the 1984 DN Gold Cup sailed at Krynica Morska in Poland. The regatta is memorable for a field of 240 competitors, certainly one of the largest DN championships in history. Ron Sherry US44 remembers “driving back to the hotel with him in 1984 in Poland to pick up some Boston Sails. He was so calm and matter of fact. I told him if I had won, I would be like a NASA Launch.”
Mihkel Kosk recalls Tiit’s life outside of DN sailing, “The big thing that he was also a great talent in music and in the USSR time a part and member of a band Ruja. Ruja was as popular in Estonia as the Rolling Stones were in the states and very much on the legal line with the USSR officials!”
