BoG 2019 KONSAL CHALLENGE – Baltic Forge of Characters

27 August 2019

The Battle of Gotland is without a doubt the most difficult regatta in the Baltic! There are 500 nautical miles of solo sailing waiting for Battle Warriors, which means a minimum of 3 days of constant effort and concentration.

Every year we have more and more experienced competitors, more and more experienced shore team and, what is equally important – proven partners on whom you can always count!

This year, the KONSAL Protection Agency is the titular partner – known for its reliability and professionalism throughout the Tri-City and beyond. This year’s regatta will thus be played under the name “Great Sailing Battle of Gotland – Konsal Challenge”.

Of course, KONSAL is also the frontman of this company, i.e. Ryszard Drzymalski – one of the greatest veterans of the Battle, who regularly starts every year since the 2014 edition. In the meantime, he changed his first s/y Konsal to a bigger and faster Slotta 1200, obviously bearing the name … KONSAL 2. Always in the lead, last year on the podium.

Not the first (and hopefully not the last) time, the Marshal of the Pomeranian Voivodeship Mr. Mieczysław Struk took over us his patronage and support.


Only the bravest will complete the regatta, facing further obstacles, constantly fighting for the maximum speed of their yachts.

During such exhausting regattas, sailors not only compete with each other, but mainly fight their own weaknesses. Only those who master the ability to break down their powers and manage their psycho-physical condition will remain in the game so that in crisis moments, which on such a crowded and difficult sea will certainly not be lacking, be always ready and make good decisions.

500 nautical miles:
at full speed,
in constant readiness, in focus and concentration, despite increasing fatigue and drowsiness … up to the finish line.
