GM & SM – Update 20Feb

The scouting teams are currently focusing the efforts to Säkylä and Hanko. Other locations are being followed in the background.

There have been already some sailors on ice at Hanko – reporting ice good for sailing. Sailors will be on ice at Säkylä latest Thursday – but according to the local contacts the ice appears good there as well.

The organizing committees will keep on following the weather forecasts and conditions very closely. It is rather warm week ahead of us.
