Swan European Regatta postponed to 2021

In the light of the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus affecting the whole world, Nautor's Swan and Turku Yacht Club met yesterday to define the next steps for the organization of the Swan European Regatta, planned from July 7th to 13th.

Turku represents the home of the passionate Swan owners of that area and hosted three previous Swan regattas - in 2006 on the occasion of the Turku Yacht Club 100th anniversary, in 2012 and again in 2016 for Nautor's Swan 50th anniversary, With more than 100 yachts expected at this year's event and 31 already registered, it is with a heavy heart that Nautor and Turku have jointly decided to postpone the event to Summer 2021.

"It was not an easy decision to make, but at the moment we feel this is the right thing to do" says Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Holding CEO. "Being back in Turku after four years, breathing the essence of the passion and love our owners have for our brand, was something we were all looking forward to. Unfortunately considering the current and uncertain situation worldwide, the general mood and our aim not to jeopardize our guests' health and safety, led us to this important decision".

"The Coronavirus situation in Finland is still under control, hopefully it won't change in the near future" says Samuli Salantera, Commodore of the Yacht Club Turku. "Turku has always been the house for Swans in the Baltic and we feel the need to host this event in the best condition ever, and this is not the right time. We surely will celebrate our Spirit of Swan properly next year".
