For the upcoming season the SM40 program will be altered from previous seasons. There will be no regular weekly training for SM40:s as the boats will be geared more towards more skilled match racers – after all, it is a boat desined by the legendary Swedish designer Pelle Petterson, who designed and helmed Sweden’s Sverige challengers for the America’s Cup in 1977 and 1980.
The idea is to gather up 4-8 SM40 teams from HSS and NJK to train for and compete in two competitions during the season. The comptitions will be organized in cooperation with the participating teams (similar to how the Elliott end of season races have been organized). In the spring, there will be coached training sessions at HSS on Fridays: 17.5., 24.5., and 31.5. and a race day on Saturday 1.6. In autumn there will coached training sessions at Valkosaari on Fridays 16.8., 23.8., and 30.8 and a race day on Saturday 31.8.
Gather up a team of 5-6 sailors eg. by combining two Elliott teams and sign up for the SM40 racing season! For HSS SC members and NJK MRC members the price is 200 euros per participating SM40 team and it includes trainings and races. All members have the right to use the SM40 boats outside these trainings, SM40 skipper rights can be applied for when the season starts.
