Baltic Classic Circuit back again in 2017 with four international regattas


The Baltic Classic Master Cup 2017 will be a circuit again with four international regattas in Sweden and Finland, two in each country. The cup  started in 2010 as a multievent circut but the format was too ambitious and the turnout dwindled with just a handful of yachts participating in more than one or two regattas. Now, after two very successful single-event classic regattas with 30 yachts racing in Turku, Finland, in 2015 and 35 at Sandhamn, Sweden in 2016, SCYT and three yachts clubs have now decided to relaunch the Baltic Classic Circuit in 2017.
The clubs are the Royal Swedish Yacht Club, KSSS, Airisto Yacht Club, ASS, in Turku, Finland, and Helsinki Yacht Club, HSS, in Finland

Swedish yachts took top nine positions in Baltic Classic Masters


Baltic Classic Masters at Sandhamn in August became a primarily Swedish racing affair with 27 Swedish yachts, three Finnish, one Russian, one Belgian and one British. The 30 sq m Pani won, with 75 sq m Trumph second and 95 sq m Marga third. The best visiting yacht was Russian L6 offshore cruiser Nika, who finished 10th. The best Finnish yacht was offshore cruiser Kersti.

Nevertheless, the Baltic Classic Masters had the best turnout ever with 33 yachts  participating. Unfortunately, an additional two Finnish yachts could not make it to Sandhamn because of gale-force winds preceeding the event. Fortunately 8mR Vågspel and 10mR Kitty had crossed in good time and contributed together with Kersti, Varen (UK) and Nika to give the event an international athmospere of fun and racing, which was very much appreciated by all and not the least the organizing yacht club KSSS and Sail Yacht Society of Sweden.

Glass pitchers for the winners

In addtion to the GL Watson Challenge Trophy the contenders in the Baltic Classic Master Cup will now also race for three glass pitchers designed by the classic sailor and glass designer Lars Sestervik. The three top yachts in the cup will each receive one of Sestervik's engraved pitchers. They are called "10 degrees" and we think you can figure out why.
