The Swan Anniversry regatta is soon to begin and Tarantella and her crew are eagerly waiting for the first start. Our goal is simple: Win them all! Over All.
We have heard that the preparations are going ahead at full speed, as is Tarantella, who's arriving in Turku on Monday, and everything will be in marvelous condition at the start of the regatta with the Long Archipelago Race on Thursday. Some 77 yachts are participating in the event, split about evenly into 2 racing and 2 cruising classes. Full details at the regatta's home page

Special guests at this historical event are above all the founder of Nautor, Pekka Koskenkylä and the first Swan-owner, our Senior Skipper Heinz together with his first and second Swan, the Tarantella I and Tarantella II. Leonardo Ferragamo, owner of Nautor, will also honour the event with his presence. A brief historical of Tarantella I and NautorĀ“s first years according to Heinz' book may be found here.
