The key challenge in organising the Baltic Regatta and events on Host Ports is to ensure the safety of the participants. Each Host Port event shall operate in adherence to all local COVID-19 regulations and requirements in place at the time and all measures will reflect this.
It is advisable to have a so-called „covid passport” – the EU Covid Certificate – to facilitate travel:
vaccinated against COVID-19,
people recovering from the disease,
people with a negative PCR test result (it must be PCR and not any cheaper alternative!): the document is valid for 48 hours after receiving the test result.
Maintaining social distancing measures across all Host Port event site
Providing in port and on ship testing for participants and visitors
Providing temperature testing
Requiring the use of face masks where appropriate
Adapted in port events and programmes for trainees and visitors
