Archipelago Raid - June 26-30, 2006
Event website: - Photos by Thierry Martinez

In 2006, thirty-one Formula 18 catamarans took part in this extreme raid that occurs in the beautiful Stockholm, Åland and Finnish Archipelagos. For more than 500 miles, the unique course is drawn among 100,000 rocks and islands. On the way, the competitors have to find 20-25 checkpoints located on islands (pontoons, beaches, boats, lighthouses) as described in the "Archipelago Raid Book" (latitude, longitude). The teams are free to choose their route between two checkpoints. This year's light air start required paddling to make progress.
