Espoo Suursaari Race 11-13 June 2021by Love4C
Join us as part of the crew for the biggest offshore racing event in Finland, Espoo Suursaarirace 11-13.6.2021
We will be joining the race onboard “Another Brick”, a First 44.7 sailing yacht designed by Bruce Farr, the worlds most successful designer.
The start is on Friday evening outside Haukilahti, Espoo, and the route takes us east, rounding the Russian island of Hogland and going back west to the finishing line outside Lauttasaari, Helsinki.
We will be leaving from our home harbour, Amiraalinsatama (the Admirals harbour) in Espoo, but if need be, we can also pick you up in Haukilahti harbour before the start.
We will probably reach the finishing line on Saturday evening, and will continue back to Amiraalinsatama either on Saturday evening or Sunday morning. You may also choose to leave our company directly after the race at HSK, Lauttasaari.
