Below some images from the Finnish Vene16 Boat show where the Finnish 5.5m association appeared alongside Mahogany Yachting Society (http://www.mys.fi) and Forum Marinum (http://www.forum-marinum.fi), where Skylark is being renovated.
Last Saturday featured a panel discussion on Skylarks renovation and about her history. Skylark is due to be relaunched next summer.
Saturday continued with seminar organized by the Finnish Boating Federation focusing this year on groundbreaking design in history and today with Juan Kouyoumdjian talking about some of his winning designs and Alex Thomson explaining how reliability over revolution can be a winning approach in ocean racing.
The Finnish 5.5m association will hold its spring meeting during March to plan next summer. However, it has already been decided that open class championships will be raced during 18-19. June in R-Regatta at ESF, in the archipelago couple of hours west of Helsinki.
