Tarantella took first place in the annual Sparkman & Stephen Association Regatta on 30.8.2008. The course of 17 nm distance was sailed off Helsinki and the results were calculated using the LYS handicap system.

Antti Muuronen's Adelfe, a Swan 36, gave Tarantella a good fight and finished second. Jussi Kalsta's Marianne, a S&S 36 finished third.

A rather cool wind was blowing from north west at  8 - 16 knots. The great wind shifts were challenging especially on the beating leg from Hramtsow to Rysäkari. After the race we enjoyed Sauna and a hot salmon soup in pleasant company at the HSS club restaurant. The evening was finished with a quitz, in which the Tarantella family crew made a good result at equal points with the Kuohuneiti crew. The best crew was solved by an additional question which made Kuohuneiti's crew the winner.

The full results were:
