Results, which are not the most important thing in this event, can […]

Hanko Regatta 2017

After a 3 week windy period it was time again for Finland’s greatest annual race sailing regatta in Hanko. Weak wind and clear sunny weather kept the sailors long days on the sea, so it was real aftersail party after all sailing days.

The one and greatest Hanko Regatta was sailed on the second weekend of July in varying winds and some fog on Saturday morning. Almost 200 yachts in 17 different classes on 4 separate race areas during three days makes it a popular regatta for a hardcore sailor and for less serious holiday sailors as well. Sorry for not having any photos of the Moth class. I was just not on the right place on the right time. 25 photos from […]

Helsinki Regatta 2016

Helsinki Regatta photos of keelboat classes from Saturday races in nice sunny weather and light to medium wind. If you wonder why there are not so many photos of the 6mR yachts, it is because I was asked to shoot some video of the 6mR class. Download keelboat results.   Please also check photogallery from Mika Lilja

Viaporin Tuoppi 2015, SuPS

The funniest and greatest wooden boat event in Finland organized by Suomenlinnan Pursiseura. This year already the 31st time almost 200 yachts racing along the shores of Helsinki. The light wind and sunny weather guaranteed that people enjoyed both racing on the sea and after sail in the Suomenlinna harbour. Totally 246 photos, but anyhow couldn’t get you all. If you are looking for a specific yacht it might be more comfortable to search direct in the Flickr Album.
