Eight teams took part in the Sailing Competition "BORA Sailing Championship - Burgas 2021", which was held in the the Port of Burgas in the weekend. The final round in Burgas was won by a team of Yacht Club Port Varna "Wildcard". The teams "Ultramarine SVC" and "Park mart" took second and third place.
Diyan Dimov, Executive Director of Port of Burgas EAD, which is hosting the event, presented the organizer Ivan Georgiev from BORA Sailing with a plaque on behalf of the Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Georgi Todorov.
The competition is a completely new format for Bulgaria. This is the second round of the championship, as the first round was held in June in Varna. The teams rotate the four SB20 boats of the same type in each race. The idea is for each crew to change the boat several times, as well as the opponents they face.
According to the rules of procedure, after the two rounds in Varna and Burgas, the winners are finally determined. The two teams that have won the most points in both competitions have the right to participate in the Champions League qualifiers next year.
