Helsinki is sometimes called the daughter of the baltic. The city is a unique experience with all the islands and beautiful shorelines. From the sea, the city opens in a completely different way, the open air and space remove everyday stress and refresh sailors. Go for a day trip with friends or colleagues, spend a day at sea away from the routines and soothe your mind, get some good vibes that keeps you going at work.
The home harbor of s/y Eira, located on the Valkosaari island, offers the best possible entry and return port, it is located in the center of Helsinki just a short romantic ferry ride away from the city center. This oasis with its old-fashioned buildings is infused with history and creates a perfect setting for a successful event. If you want, Eira’s skipper can guide and tell you about 150 years of history, architecture and art. The island restaurant, NJK Valkosaari, also offers one of Helsinki’s finest dining experiences. What could be a better after-sail than a dinner in the same place the members of the Nordic Royal families and other dignitaries have catered festivities for over a century. The restaurant also offers its own cabinets for breakfast meetings before sailing. For the courageous there is a sauna at request. Please send us your wish list!
During sailing, our skippers will guide the participants to the secrets of sailing and are happy to answer any questions about boat handling and navigation. The Swan 51 is a brilliant example of Finnish boat-building skills and does not require much presentations. Eira has sailed more than twenty times across the Atlantic and has seen crews from all corners of the world, get involved and part of its brilliant history!
