All photos open in a new window, the size of the large photos is 100-120 Kb
The view from the Schroud-bridge
Shrouds - on the masts and on the Shroud-bridge
Riga welcomes the regatta with a rainbow
There are dozens of small yachts...
...but thousands of people have come to see them.
Mexican sailors have come to shore
The russians show-off their dexterity
The last day - "Nadezhda" leaving Riga
At the mouth of the Daugava thousands of meople saw the regatta off
That is something Riga had not seen for a long time!
The mast parade
Yards, the sky, romance...
A russian sailers crew
The "off-seers" who don't know what it is like to get out of Daugavgriva yet
The last yacht left Riga, but emotions stay!
