FINEST OFFSHORE SERIES 2022

In 2018 Finnish and Estonian ORC sailors decided to compete together on both sides of the Gulf of Finland. Three events both in 2018 and 2019 were sailed as part of the  FINEST OFFSHORE SERIES. See the websites of the past years at the bottom of the page.

Come to compete for the beautiful FINEST Offshore Series Trophy, now in hold of the latest winner – Katariina II of Aivar Tuulberg in 2019. Due to the Covid-19 impact and travel restrictions 2020 and 2021 didn’t favour organizing this joint series, but now you have this chance again.
