Gliding on ice - Baikal hosts ice sailing cup

Ice yachts use sails and glide across frozen lakes and can reach speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour (62mph).

Snowy conditions on the ice have slowed ice sailors down a bit as sailing into "snow pies" can send the sleighs off course, participant Roman Kolypov told Reuters.

Apart from Russians, ice racers from Germany, Switzerland, and Poland took part in the competition this year.
