The 100 Year Regatta

FKY-Wintertreffen: Eva Karlsson Nordlöf lud zur "The 100 Year Regatta" vom 11. bis 13. August 2020 in Ornö & Nynäshamn (Schweden)."This year, 2020, we are attempting to increase our World Record of 2018. We are getting together to manifest the Regatta World Record for yachts 100 years old or older. Last summer, 2019, Gstaad Yacht Club successfully managed to get 20 yachts finishing, but our record from 2018 of 22 yachts still stands."
