Yachting enthusiasts from around the world are getting together in Helsinki on February the 29th. Our mission is to strengthen bonds between classic yacht sailors and to create a deeper understanding of the history, the present and the future opportunities of classic yachting. The symposium also is also a tribute to the contributions of the designers, builders, owners and sailors involved with classic yachts. The symposium has featured several prominent yachtsmen from all over the world, among others Halsey Herreshoff, David Pedrick, Alex Thomson, Juan Kouyoumdjian, Heinz Ramm-Schmidt, Antti Herlin, Jussi Gullichsen, Henrik Andersin and John Lammerts van Bueren. The 9th Symposium is honouring the memory of the Symposium founder, Esko Kilpi, who’s chosen theme for 2020 is Joy and Beauty.
