    Background: Soviet teams won all the major classes at the 32nd International Baltic Regatta. The eight-day event, which ended on July 18, attracted yachtsmen from nine European countries and from Cuba. Seven different categories participated in the races. In the Catamaran class, Soviet Sergei Priymak, 25, fought hard to take the lead from his experienced rivals. With his Tornado Catamaran, he managed to leave behind the world Champion and winner of the Centennial Kiel Regatta, Victor Potapov. He also knocked out European Champion Jacob Kliver. The Finn class proved to be the most popular this year, with 64 yachts taking part. Nikolai Sukhorukov, 22, of the Soviet Union, won this category with Polish yachtsman Henrik Blaska second and former European Champion Sergei Khoretski, of the USSR, third. Soviet Ramis Faizulin was the winner of the boardsailing class, while two of the three West German boardsailors were women. The flying Dutchman class was won by Soviet yachtsman Alexander Shpilko, 22.
