MidsummerSail Baltic Regatta

The AGORA direct MidsummerSail is a sailing regatta from the southernmost to the northernmost point of the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea is one of the most beautiful sailing areas in the world. There are hardly any tides and during the summer there is almost constant daylight. The Baltic offers all kinds of conditions, from very light to very strong winds, and from all possible directions. A glance at a map will make you want to sail the whole way across. The North-South stretch of almost 900 nautical miles provides the perfect balance between a holiday trip and a sea-going race. But please note, it's called the longest and hardest Baltic regatta for a reason!

Well, just trying to syncronise my website with a Facebook Store - wish I could get my head around these csv spreadsheets, it would save me no end of time!! Anyway, hopefully 'the powers that be' at Facebook will approve my Store shortly and that will feature lots of things, like a new Facebook Group (DIY Boat Repairs & Refurbishments).

Help keep our planet and oceans safe.

One thing that you will ultimately realise about us is that we really do care about our oceans and the planet. You might find that your order arrives in a recycled shoe box or something that has already been used for postage. Why? Quite simply, we are not tight, it's just that we prefer to recycle packaging wherever possible - we're only a drop in the ocean (if you'll pardon the pun, you know, Fastnet Marine), but at least we know that we have done our bit to help protect our planet.


Sailors: Please do your bit to help protect our seas and inland lakes, etc. When you are enjoying the pastime that gives you access to coastal or inland waters, please try to remove any rubbish, plastic or other waste you might find floating in the water, where possible, and bring it ashore to dispose of correctly. Thank you.
