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!
