Labor Day Race is a fun sail from Tallinn to Helsinki to mark the first days of spring.
After the crossing to Helsinki we will start the Labour Day festivities. The boat will be parked at the Katajanokka quest harbour next to the waterfront restaurant scene. The party will be on the boat as well as the terraces and restaurants ashore. Among the participants we will later agree upon a brunch the day after, a very traditional thing in Finland.
