GS Regatta 2017

In 2017 we were celebrating Göran Schildt a hundred year anniversary. It was the 8th regatta and due to the jubilee we planned for the 2017 regatta to be a very special one. For the first time throughout the regatta history we sailed for four whole days while covering a distance of one hundred nautical miles.

There was both Finnish and Greek cultural program on the menu as well as the opportunity to explore four beautiful islands.
