Our Day Harbour in Ruissalo, Turku, Finland has become very popular in less than a month.

- We are really pleased to see that boaters have found the harbour and all the service we provide. I think we have the beginning of something great here, Alfons Håkans' Managing Director Joakim Håkans says.

 The yacht club Airisto Segelsällskap is currently using the harbour as its venue for the Baltic Classic Masters regatta.

In honour of our nation Finland’s 100th anniversary, Airisto Segelsällskap i Åbo is organizing the Baltic Classic Masters regatta for classic yachts and the 5.5 m class championship. The Classic Yachts Regatta is open to classic yachts in solid wood or riveted steel built or designed 1970 and earlier.

The regatta is part of the Baltic Classic Master Cup 2017 that is raced in Stockholm and Sandhamn, Sweden, Turku and Helsinki, Finland.

In order to ensure that the competition runs as smoothly as possible for both classes, the classic yachts, and the 5.5 m will be competing in their own designated course areas.

The Regatta is being organised by Airisto Segelsällskap i Åbo in co-operation with other local associations, clubs and the City of Turku.
