Helsinki Boatshow 2008

The 2008 Helsinki Boatshow started yesterday with a day for press and other VIPs. Four Micro-Magic boats were sponsored by the Finnish Sailing Federation and its parters, and on Friday a few of the Finnish Olympic sailors got together for some racing in the pool. The show is now open until Sunday 17th, and the Finnish Micro-Magic sailors are sailing in the pool 2-3 times per day for 30 minutes at a time. This pool is a bit smaller, 4.5x9.5 m, than the one at Model Expo last year, but we found some better fans for generating wind. They seem to create less turbulence and a smoother wind across the pool.
