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

Helsinki Regatta was sailed on Saturday in light wind and sunny weather. On Sunday a rain front with hard wind had reached Helsinki from South-West and caused some issues to the organizers. Of six planned races on three different courses only two races were sailed. The 80 photos are from the dinghy course with 505, 470, Snipe, Finn, Laser Standard, Europe and Laser radial dinghies.

Summer heat sailing in the Helsinki Regatta keelboat classes. Althought non-existing wind some of the boats managed to race under the maximum race time of 3 hours. Lots of fun and happy faces after the race.
