The location of the regatta is in Finlands most southern town, Hangö, which is known for good winds and being a very popular location for sailing and surfing. The arranging club, Hangö Segelförening (HSF) is a renowned host of sailing venues, most known for arranging the annual “Hangöregattan” – the largest sailing regatta in Finland.
The Open F18 Nordics 2018 welcomes all sailors and is also a perfect fit with the Stockholm Archipelago Raid that will be held just two weeks before the Nordic Championships. A great opportunity to combine both the Raid and the Nordics while visiting the Nordics! There are good ferry connections via Stockholm, Sweden and Germany to Turku and Helsinki in Finland from where it is a short 1,5 hour drive to Hanko.
