Burgas provides funding to Mihail Kopanov for his participation in the OSTAR lone regatta …….

A few days ago a meeting was held between the Mayor of Burgas Dimitar Nikolov and the Burgas sailor Mihail Kopanov, to which the Mayor handed the flag to the Municipality of Burgas. One of the most successful names of Burgas in sailing is the name of Mihail Kopanov, who is preparing his participation for the toughest and most dangerous OSTAR lone regatta, which will start on May 10 at the port of Plymouth, UK.

In front of Misho there is a crossing of the North Atlantic with a sailing yacht, with the most severe conditions possible, such as high winds, high waves, cold weather, icebergs, almost all the time rain and very often storms. The finale is in New Port, USA.
“I wish Mr. Kopanov success, we are convinced of his abilities. His participation in the regatta is a good advertisement for Burgas as a seaside town that has traditions in maritime sports. Thank you to Port Burgas Yacht Club for the support, ”said the Mayor of Burgas Municipality Dimitar Nikolov.
“Since the 1970s,  had three representatives from Bulgaria participate in the OSTAR regatta,” said Yacht Club Port Bourgas chairman Evgeni Mavrodiev. These are the famous captain Georgi Georgiev, Captain Nikola Dzhambazov, Dr. Vasil Kurtev and after a long time there is a participant in the prestigious race. ”
Mihail Kopanov will sail from Burgas with Crone One on March 15. Our media wishes him success and trouble-free sailing!
