Suursaari race is the largest offshore race in Finland, taking place June 11th to June 12th or 13th.
This is the race in which the elite of the Finnish offshore racers are participating.
The start is outside Haukilahti in Espoo on Friday evening, from where we head out to sea. We will sail east, rounding the formerly Finnish but today Russian island of Hogland, returning back west to Lauttasaari, Helsinki. The route is around 160NM long, so we expect to arrive in Helsinki on Saturday, close to midnight. The conditions are usually very variable this time of year, mostly pleasant, but the nights may be cold. As the nights are very short in Finland in June, the visibility will be very good throughout the race – it doesn’t really get dark at all.
We are planning for a crew of 6-10 persons and although previous sailing/racing experience is to advantage, we also invite beginners to experience the thrill of offshore racing under the supervision of our competent crew.
Price per person: 350 €
