Swan European Regatta
It’s worth flocking down to the shores of the River Aura from July 21st-25th to experience the atmosphere of a real sailing competition, when the Swan sailboats gather in Turku to compete and show off their speed. As the name implies, the model is the Swan of sailboats, and holds a place of pride in Finland for its boatbuilding skills. The Nautor boatyard in Pietarsaari is known all over the world for proudly producing luxurious beauties. The Swan Regatta brings together the Swans of Europe to compete every other year, and this year Turku is the host for the competition.
