2014 Finland Inkeri

The Mattio family was at it again and was again unbeatable. They repeated last year’s triumph in an even better time closely followed by Antti Muuronen in Adelfi, a Swan 36. Antti sailed relatively faster, but had heavier competition in his class and therefore could not claim the Challenge Cup. As Olli Martio says: “We know this race, our boat, and our crew so well that almost no-one can beat us in our class”.
