“An extensive programme of constructions is to be accomplished in connection with the Olympic Regatta of the Moscow Olympic which will take place in Tallinn, in 1980. The building of the yachting centre and other olympic constructions has already begun. During the Moscow Olympic Games in 1980, Tallinn is to enact the role of the regatta town, which means that it will get a number of new privileges as well as obligations. Intense work has been already carried on for years in order to fulfil the extensive construction programme of the new sports, services and public buildings, and duly receive the contestants and the crowds of guests.”
