The biennial Swan European Regatta comes to Turku once again. The sailing competition will take place on 19–23 July in the Airisto sea area, and the Forum Marinum Maritime Centre’s area will provide the setting for the ashore programme.
After the great success of the 2021 edition, the Swan European Regatta will be hosted once again by the beautiful city of Turku from July 19th to 23rd.
This event is one of the most eagerly awaited appointments in Northern European Swan Owners’ calendar.
Organized by the City of Turku, Turku Yacht Club, Forum Marinum Maritime Centre and Sunborn Events, jointly with Nautor Swan and its sports division, ClubSwan Racing, the event will take place from July 19th to 23rd, with a very exciting sailing and social programme.
The regatta is expected to attract a fleet of more than 50 yachts and a large crowd enjoying the show, with the event weekend offering plenty of exciting activities to the visitors in the Forum Marinum area.
This will represent one of the featured events of ClubSwan Racing calendar, and for sure it will be the highlight within the Swan Baltic Series, one out of five series that ClubSwan Racing deliveries to Swan owners and crew all around the world.
“I'm glad that Turku can once again host this wonderful maritime event. As the name ‘Swan’ stems from Suomen Joutsen (‘Finnish Swan’), it’s wonderful that Nautor Swan has found a home port for their competition in Turku of all places”, says Minna Arve, Mayor of Turku.
Nautor Swan is recognized all over the world for its performance sailing yachts. The key elements of the brand are elegance, quality, performance, innovation and reliability.
With a state-of-the-art facility based in Jakobstad, a Global Service with four hubs in the Med and 18 service points, the divisions ClubSwan Racing, Brokerage and Charter, Nautor is a brand with 360° activity. More than 2,350 yachts have been built over five decades between 36 and 131 feet.
The Opening ceremony on July 19th, will unfurl 4 days dedicated to the love for sailing in the beautiful Baltic archipelago and to the fun ashore, with the Owners’ dinner on July 21st, the Prize Giving on 22nd and the wonderful and enchanting Parade of Swans on the final day, as a perfect treat for sailors and spectators.
“This is the fifth time here and it is an amazing experience for us. Our home in the Baltic is Jakobstad but we feel really at home in Turku and it’s electrifying to see all these sails unfold in the beautiful setting of the Finnish coast. As the Finnish say: It’s sailing in forest”, says Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO. “In these four days, there is the opportunity to come and see Swans of all time and live the true Spirit of Swan.”
