Welcome to Grand Masters Cup 2022 arranged by DN Finland – in Sweden!
A snowstorm passed over Finland and Estonia last weekend. According to our information it did not give too much snow in Sweden. There may, however, come another low pressure over Sweden later this week, which according to the current forecasts, may give snow there.
It is difficult to find the perfect spot. All hints are welcomed. We have not given up the hope, but currently we cannot give any further info. There are scheduled races next weekend in Estonia, Finland and Sweden. This means that the ice is being seriously searched.
All entrants will be added to the Whatsapp Group called “DN GM Cup 2022 Official”. This is the channel for official information from the Race Committee during the regatta. For participants read only.
All entrants will be added to the Whatsapp Group called “GrandMasters EU small talk”. This is the channel for unofficial chat, like venue speculation, Covid regulations, etc. All participants can contribute. If you do not intend to participate in the regatta, but wish to be enrolled in the WA group, please use this link:
There is some concern in the air, caused by the current COVID situation and restrictions in Europe. Everyone is aware of the current COVID situation. However, no one knows the situation of early February. The Finnish restrictions currently in force do not prevent organizing sport events outdoors, provided that relevant safety measures are followed.
DN Finland is still proceeding with the organizing work. The primary candidate for the venue is Finland, but as we all know, this may change according to conditions. Moving the venue to another country may, however, be difficult because of the varying COVID procedures. Our intention is to keep you all informed about any changes as early as possible.
As every skipper is solely responsible for his/her decision to race, he/she is also solely responsible for coping with possible travelling restrictions and conditions, which unfortunately may change in short notice.
Let’s keep the spirit up and hope for the best (ice and wind)!
