For centuries, Pirita on Tallinn Bay has welcomed sailors and hosted regattas. It was also home to the 1980 Olympic Regatta.
Pirita waters are convenient for hosting a major regatta. Tallinn Olympic Yachting Centre, originally built for the Olympic event, provides an excellent sailing infrastructure with comfortable conditions for competing as well as recreation. All courses are within 15 minutes of the shore. Regatta headquarters provides excellent facilities to cater to the needs of sailors, coaches, support teams and media.
For moments of relaxation, the city of Tallinn offers medieval sights next to modern ones, interesting cultural experiences, great food and friendly people. After all, Tallinn was European Capital of Culture in 2011.
We are working hard to bring you the most memorable Finn Gold Cup and we hope you enjoy it.
