History
The idea of a swim from an oil-producing platform originated a long time ago. But at the initiative of Oleg Aristov, with the support of the Administration of the Kaliningrad Region and the Mayakovsky Park Hotel, the historic swim took place for the first time on September 6, 2021. Swimmers from the incredible size of the platform rushed to the coast, overcoming 35 km of waves of the open Baltic Sea, where border boats can take everyone for a spy or illegal. In our case, "It is not for you to escape from the castle of If". This is a real challenge for those who want to become a legend!
The D-6 oil production platform was commissioned in 2004. It is located 5 kilometers from the Russian-Lithuanian border near the Curonian Spit, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
rules
The MayakRace swim is carried out in accordance with the requirements and rules established by the organizers. The rules are based on international guidelines. The organizers recommend paying attention to a number of points that must be observed before and during the swim.
Hydrometeorological outline of the swim
From a geological point of view, the Curonian Spit peninsula is an outstanding object of the last stage of the Earth's evolution with a high level of dynamism of geomorphological processes. Both the spit itself and the adjacent water area for several thousand years have been the place of conjugation and pinching out of various geological formations. The length of the Curonian Spit is 98 km, exactly half of the 49 km belongs to Russia.

The distance between start and finish along the shortest trajectory is 34.9 km.

The launch site is the first of its kind domestic offshore ice-resistant stationary platform D-6, with a total construction weight of about 11,000 tons, including the support block and topsides of the technological and residential modules, as well as the transition bridge.

The finish point is a lighthouse next to the narrowest point on the Curonian Spit, which is only 400 meters wide (Mayakovsky Park Hotel).
MayakRace is held in 1 swim in the 2021 season from September 3-8. In September, the average water temperature is 16-18 degrees. The depth throughout the distance ranges from 25 to 75 meters. In terms of weather, the region is complex and unpredictable.

During the swim, the swimmer's speed is influenced by the direction and strength of the wind as well as the direction of the wave, and the speed of swimmers may increase or decrease due to weather conditions. The weather conditions for the swim are assessed by the organizers on the basis of forecasts from several sources and are communicated to the swimmers on the eve of the start. The final word on participation in the swim is taken by the swimmer.

CULTURE
The Kaliningrad Region is the westernmost administrative center of Russia. The city is located at the confluence of the Pregolya River with the Kaliningrad Bay. Until 1946 the city was called Königsberg.

It is worth coming here in order to plunge into the extraordinary atmosphere where Soviet culture and the Prussian past are mixed. Only here you can see the neighborhood of panel buildings with Lutheran churches, the neighborhood of monuments to Immanuel Kant and Kalinin.
About 90% of all amber in the world is mined in the Kaliningrad region. Some lucky ones find this precious mineral right on the beach while walking, as it is washed ashore from time to time by the sea waves. It is not surprising that the local amber museum houses the largest amber collection in the world.
Kaliningrad, one of the top 25 Russian industrial centers, has repeatedly won prizes in other nominations. Over the past ten years, it has already been named the best city in Russia for doing business, the most beautiful city in our country, and has been recognized as the best in all respects three times. The most important sights of Kaliningrad are the Cathedral, Kant's grave, Fish Village, Amber Museum, Rosgarten Gate, Upper Lake, Konigsberg forts No. 5 and No. 11, Friedland Gate Museum, Blindage Museum (Bunker of General Otto von Läsch), Museum of the World Ocean , Two-level bridge, Central Park and Zoo, Church of the memory of Queen Louise (Puppet theater), the historical district of Amalienau and the Church of the Holy Family with the Concert Hall of the Kaliningrad Regional Philharmonic.
The Curonian Spit is a unique example of the harmonious coexistence of nature and man, distinguished by an abundance of natural and cultural values. The Curonian Spit was included in the World Heritage List in the cultural landscape nomination.
Currently, the territory of the Curonian Spit is officially protected by the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage.
