The race itself starts on Saturday morning. The racecourse is through the archipalago and quite tight and narrow in places. The race itself is a handicap race with a chasing start. This means that the start of the race is staggered according to the handicap of the boats, so that the first boat over the finish line is the winner. The racecourse is around 22 NM long.
