kjk-logo-260x116Kalevi Jahtklubi was founded on February 8th in 1948. Kalev Jahtklubi has more than 600 members.

Our own uniform and insignia, excellent race organising, promoting sailing sport and maritime activities, training yacht captains and steersmen, maintaining sailing as a lifestyle – these are the values that the club’s boards and executive leaders have followed with the club members throughout the decades.

Thanks to our club members, Tallinn became the city of the Olympic Regatta in 1980 and the Olympic fire burned in Pirita on 20-30 July.

Kalevi Jahtklubi (KJK) is the home harbour for about one hundred small craft and several dozen guest boats. KJK includes yachtsmen and sea friends of all ages. The members of KJK have won medals from the Olympic Games, World and European Championships. They have been successful in both Olympic classes as well as in offshore and ice sailing.

Throughout the years, Kalevi Jahtklubi has organised many major competitions, starting from international Baltic regattas and finishing with European and World Championships of different yacht classes. Notable major competitions from recent years are the European Children’s Championships of the Dragon class in 2004, Laser Standard and Laser Radial European Championship regatta in 2010 and in the same year also the World Championship of Melges 24 class in Tallinn; as well as the World Championship Finn Gold Cup for the Finn class organised in 2013. In co-operation with Pärnu yacht club, in 2015 Kalevi Jahtklubi also organised the European Championship regatta for ORC offshore yachts in Pärnu.

Since 1977, Kalevi Jahtklubi has had its own sailing sports school where 85 students are studying sailing. Rein Ottoson’s sailing sports school is also active in the yacht club’s territory.

Weekly three-day regattas for offshore yachts, as well as yacht club’s cup contests, are organised for club members. In winter, spirited club evenings as well as training courses are organised for recreational craft captains and sailing judges.

The objective of Kalevi Jahtklubi is:

  • To be a club that promotes and connects sailing enthusiasts;
  • To provide the guests and club members with quality and diversified services;
  • To continuously develop in order to become the best home and guest harbour by the Gulf of Finland.
