The photoregatta - 2008 started during an uneasy time for world economic: due to the crisis many companies, declaring earlier about their intention to assist the creative event, had to refuse participation in the project.

It should be noted that there were no glamour pictures of girls of modeling appearance in the present photo competition of sea and yacht fans but there were portraits and sketches presented by genuine sea "wolves".
