Audi HSS Sailing Center participated in Hanko Regatta 2014 with two SM40 and three 606 boats. The results are found at hangoregattan.fi.

Friday

The first day at Hanko Regatta started with perfect weather conditions, sunshine and 5m/s wind which rise up to 8m/s during the second start.

Saturday

A cold damp mist rose up from the water on Saturday morning forcing the race committee  to postpone the start. Eventually the AP flag came down and all boats headed to the race courses. Unfortunately half of the boats had to return because of the mist and lack of wind. The mist became even tighter and the wind died totally so after one start the other  half of the boats had to be towed to the harbor.

The main pier in the harbor was filled with celebrating people as the traditional masquerade between Audi HSS Sailing Center and NJK was in full steam. And for the first time in history the challenge trophy from Hanko Regatta will be spending the year at Audi HSS Sailing Center thanks to the Nunns and Monks of Team Kääriä.

Sunday

The final day at the Hanko Regatta was sunny and windy. Because of the hard wind 6mR and 8mR classes did not sail at all on Sunday. All other classes were out enjoying the sunny but demanding sailing conditions.
