Jakob's Birthday BBQ Race 2021
Sailonline had two founders and Jakob, the more senior of the two, has his birthday in April and it is therefore fitting that Sailonline's tradition of celebrating this joyous event by racing like loons around the Stockholm Archipelago is upheld. Please join us in a tricky 30nm race in beautiful Linjet33s from Revengegrundet Lighthouse to a birthday BBQ by Baggensfjärden.
Grattis på födelsedagen Jakob!
Lycka till, alla!!
