The Helsinki Sailing Club (HSK) are delighted to be hosting this year’s Gold Cup from July 20-27 and 60 boats are already registered  !

Now the ice around Helsinki has finally melted and Spring is in the air, the Finnish Dragon Association can look forward to an exciting programme of races in the lead up to their main event.

Just prior to the Gold Cup, why not compete in the Finnish National Championships (July 13-15) which will be sailed on the same race course as the Gold Cup. The HSK has ample space for boats to arrive early and a warm welcome will be given to all competitors for early training and practice.

Detailed information on the venue, transportation and accommodation can be found on this “Home Page” of the IDA web site…
