Race from Stockholm around Gotland to Sandhamn is now on. Ari is sailing it with a crew. The lively race village offered its best before the start and it was cool to meet Helly Hansen staff there, too.

Ari took the start peacefully. The route out from Stockholm to open waters is narrow and long. IMOCAs are at their best when there is more space around.

You can follow the ÅF Offshore Race and ARIEL2 at the race site here or Marine Traffic for example.
