It starts in brilliant sunshine!

2015-06-26 - ÅF Offshore Race During a warm and clear summer evening, all participating crews were welcomed to this year's ÅF Offshore Race by Mayor Karin Wanngård, Jonas Wiström, CEO of the main sponsor ÅF and Staffan Salén, commodore of the Royal Swedish Yacht Club. Almost a thousand people had settled at the main stage in the Race Village to see and enjoy the warmth and entertainment.

Karin Wanngård prized racing event as an excellent opportunity to attract people to Stockholm. Jonas Wiström saw the occasion as a good opportunity to attract his own staff to experience the thrill of sailing and pushing for the ÅF Group as a good employer. Staffan Salén took the opportunity to thank all the volunteers and officials who made this great event possible.

It was a lighthearted event in a friendly atmosphere and with expectations of an exciting ocean racing. The pontoons begin to fill up and all participants will be in place by Friday evening. Now we are all awaiting the start of the race.
