Regards from Finland

Hi ladies and gentlemen!

I'm Timo from Finland, and have been ribbing since 2004 and I'm a newbie on this forum. Just wanted to say hello to everybody!

What's the air temperature like in Finland at present? I was over in Finland last December and one day it was -22 C, very cold.

Welcome to the board

My mom is from Jacobstad, and spent her childhood summers on an island enjoying the sea. Since Swann boats are made there, her father had a nice Swann sailboat too.

Earlier today had chilly ride test-driving my SACS... -1C and 47kn speed, some small ice particles from water was hitting my face but was still extreme fun!

Hello Peter.

My location is opposite side of Finland at south-east coast, city of Kotka, 50km from Russian borber. Never been in Jacobstad but have seen few Swanns, beautiful sail-boats I must say
