International 505 Nordic Championship
10th – 12th of August 2001
International 505 Nordic Championship will be held as part of Sinfonia Regatta (49er, E-dingy, Laser, Dragon, Shark) at the beautiful Vesijärvi-lake in Lahti Finland. The race is organized by Lahden Pursiseura (LPS). Lahti is located some 100 km from Helsinki with excellent access by a four-lane highway from Helsinki. There is also a boat show during the regatta, which gathered more than 20000 people last year.
The championship is at the same time the Finnish class championship and it is also open for non-Scandinavians.
We expect around 15 boats from Finland and hope to get as many as possible from Sweden and Denmark. The event has exceptional prices. The first price will be a computer or equivelant. And we are doing everything we can to make this event as inexpensive as possible for you.
There will be a total of nine races in three days of which best seven will be counted. Registration will take place at 9:00 on the 10th and skippers meeting at 10:00. The first start in each day will take place at 11:00.
