Sailing Adventure to Örö Fortress Island 2020
Join us on an old-time sailing adventure into Finland’s military history! We will be visiting the fortress island of Örö, in the archipelago of Turku. The island is unique in both its fragile nature and long history as a military fortress. The island’s history as a fortress began under Russian rule during 1910’s, as part of Peter the Great’s marine fortifications and has been used by the military ever since. Military operations on the island have created ideal conditions for many rare species of flora and fauna. The island was opened to the public in 2015 and is now part of the Archipelago Sea National Park.
Yach Eugenia is a copy of an actual vessel built on Bolax island and sailed 1879-1951.
