Important notice

Due to the large regatta preceding the 505 Worlds, the marina will be closed for 505 boats till July, 17th, 2018 inclusive. This is not applicable to 505 boats that will come in containers. Organizers will provide safe storage for the boats that will come earlier at the Nauta Shipyard near the marina. There may be additional space for boats that come earlier in Sailing Clubs at the marina. If you would like to come earlier, please let us know by email or phone.


Gdynia offers multiple accommodation options. From cheap hostel to posh hotel, all of them located within a walking distance from the marina. Gdynia is really crowded during summer. Lots of sailing and non-sailing events take place in July. We recommend to book accommodation as soon as possible!

White Wood Properties has become an official housing partner of the 505 Worlds 2018. For more information, please take a look at Accommodation section on the regatta webpage.

Marina in Gdynia is located in the heart of the city so there is no camping nearby ☹. However, we plan to prepare a special designated place for campers and vans within a walking distance from the marina.

Container Shipping

There are two container terminals near the regatta venue. The one in Gdynia is located ten-minute-drive from the marina and the second is in Gdańsk, around one-hour-drive.

Jakub Gąsiorowski has become our logistics coordinator. We kindly ask a representative for each container to be shipped to Gdynia to contact Jakub in order to start coordinating the details. If you are shipping your boat via container, please designate a lead and contact Jakub at
