Join s/y Eira on an offshore race beyond the Russian border and
back. The Suursaari Race is the Finnish equivalent to the Fastnet
race and takes the fleet around Suursaari, the biggest island
in the eastern Gulf of Finland. Suursaari (or Hogland) used to belong to Finland but was ceded to Russia after WW II. With high hills he Island is an
imposing view far out in the open sea. Usually the yacht that
manages to round the island without getting stuck in a wind hole wins.
The Suursaari Race is a two-night race that collects the Finnish
sailing elite for what is the longest offshore sail race in
The race is long enough (approx. 160 miles) to include all the proper drill of an offshore
race. The weather typically varies a lot during the race, there is
plenty of time to practice strategies and race manoeuvres under the
guidance of our competent crew. On-board Eira even beginners can
feel the thrill and excitement of true offshore racing, no previous
racing experience required!
We take 8 crew for this trip
