Gdynia as a floating city- Volvo Gdynia Sailing Days 2017
July 3, 2017 - July 23, 2017Free
Annual and great sport event in Tricity
As we all know, Gdynia is a pretty new town but it already has a great history strictly connected with water. It`s no surprise that for the 18th time this city is hosting one of the biggest sport events in Poland – Volvo Gdynia Sailing Days. Gdynia has recently decided, that VGSD will not last 10 days, as it was back in 2016. Since this year the event will last for 3 weeks!
The regatta – what can I see there?
If you go to visit Gdynia Main Beach, Gdynia boulevard or Kamienna Góra from 3rd to 23rd of July you will have the best possibility to see the sailors. Contestants of Volvo Gdynia Sailing Days are children and adults, beginners and advanced. Also there is a competition even for disabled sailors. Before going there you should check out who actually is competing.

If you want to feel the atmosphere of the sea even more, you can go to Gdynia Marina to see beautiful boats. Gdynia has decided to extend the event because of more and more ships moored each and every day, but even that amount of time doesn`t guarantee that you will see all of the boats. However Volvo Gdynia Sailing Days is not only a “museum type” of event, where you can just visit boats and nothing more. How about spending a weekend on one of them? There are many lotteries where you can win a holiday like this! As a result of taking part in them you may have unforgettable memories of this event. But if you want to outsmart the blind fate and make sure you will be sailing you can rent a boat.
