"After the successful launch of the first race, the RORC is delighted to welcome back boats from 2022 and would encourage more teams from the Baltic region and the rest of the world to experience this new offshore race, which has the unique peculiarity of almost constant daylight," commented RORC CEO Jeremy Wilton.

A warm welcome awaits your arrival in Helsinki, followed by a proper celebration when the teams return to Finland's capital city."
