The sailing season 2017    (17-01-23)
The Board of Swedish Finn Association have discussed, we in 2017 to arrange one or two training camps. One idea could be to organize a training camp in the spring before the racing season starts (for example in the middle or at the end of April) and possibly also a training camp days before the SM in Amal (for example, 9 to 10 August). Even for younger U23 sailors - who are new in the Finn class, a training camp for the SM be valuable.

Well if you are interested in participating in one or more training camps, that you notify this either on website forums or by mail to torstenjarnstam(et)yahoo.se

When we know that interest in training camp there, we will come back with a layup, time and place, etc.
