Our Mission

Having fun, Racing, and meeting friends who share the same passion. All of that at the most magical place on Earth. Our passion is to make it reachable for ice sailors from all over the World. To bring it together at such a remote place you need to have people who never give up. It all goes back to the time when Alexander Kopylov and Wim van Acker made the impossible happen, the first international Ice boat event at Lake Baikal
These days it‘s a combined effort of passionate friends from Irkutsk, Bratsk, Vladivostok and Moscow who bring all the pieces together from paving the road to race committee. They want to make sure we all have the times of our life, and yes we definitely do!
Further our mission is to support the junior program in Russia and promote Ice sailing in general, but more than that to make friends for life throughout this amazing sport.
