Pärske Sailing Academy’s Summer Sailing trips set sail from island of Särkkä in Helsinki. Enjoying the seaside nature is at the essence of what the Summer Sailing trips are about. The participants get to sail the boat by themselves with an experienced skipper after a short safety training. The sailing boat is a Melges 24 keelboat in the high performance, sportboat category. It’s light, nimble and easy-to-manage. There is room for six sailors plus skipper in the boat.
It is also possible to end the trip at the location of your choosing in Helsinki.
It’s hard to make it more fun than this! Read what did two blogists like their first time on a sailing boat: Visit Helsinki blog: Sailing in Helsinki archipelago
