EUROSAF Match Racing
Open European Championship 2011
On behalf of the ÅLÄNDSKA SEGELSÄLLSKAPET, we are pleased to welcome you to the EUROSAF Match Racing Open European Championship 2011.
Mariehamn and Åländska Segelsällskapet have a long tradition of sailing sports
The Åland Island Yacht Club (Åländska Segelsällskapet), founded in 1897, is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Finland. The club resides in the Western Harbour of Mariehamn where the club has its main marina. This is also where the regatta base will be located.
The spectacular archipelago of the Åland islands
The waters nearby Mariehamn, the capital of the Åland islands district, are in the archipelago both exciting and challenging. The dominating wind direction in the summer is from south to south-west. The velocity of wind has a variation from 0 to over 30 knots.
Travel and accommodation
It's easy to reach the Åland Islands. Most visitors choose one of the big car-ferries that depart from different ports in Sweden and Finland. In order to obtain a space for your car and trailer on the ferry of your choice during our summer high season, please be sure to book well in advance. We also advise participants to book accommodation as soon as possible.
