Big Neva Cup 2021
February 26 @ 12:00 - February 28 @ 17:00
BIG NEVA CUP 2021 WILL GO LIVE!
Non-freezing ice pool with 4 lanes will be placed near the Finish Tower of “Strela” rowing club. The Finishing Tower is about 400 m (coordinates: 59°58’33.0″N 30°13’29.8″E) far from “Strela” (where we had the meet last year). It’s only 300 m from “Park Krestovskiy” hotel – the base hotel for the meet where you can warm up and have a lunch too.
The warm rooms of the Finish Tower will be used for dressing rooms, headquarters and the assembly point. Because of pandemic regulations in St. Petersburg, the time swimmers may stay inside will be limited according the swim heats schedule. Thanks for your cooperation. Please dress up properly warm, keep the social distance and wear masks while inside.
We refreshed the medal design. Every swimmer, traditionally, will receive a a memorable personalised dog tag with IWSA ID and a beautiful certificate.
Professional highly equipped rescue divers will provide safety to the swimmers. There will be an ambulance on duty close to the pool side.
The meet got a status of the 4-th stage of the Russian National Cup of All-Russian Winter Swimming Federation. That will definitely add some drive to the event! According the latest Russian rules, head-up is no longer necessary for breaststroke, even on short distances. Swimmers will get score points for every swim according the new scoring system. For the first time in the history the main trophy – the Big Neva cup,– will be awarded not to a relay team but to the only winner – either a man or a woman,– who scored the biggest number of the points.
The registration is open till February 22, 2021. Please don’t hesitate to register!
Nothing can ruin our Festival of Health and Strong Spirit! In St. Petersburg to SWIM!
