Meyer, the President of IEMA visited Helsinki 13-15 March 2013 with Mr.
Jean Fabre, the owner of Yqeam II. Despite the fact that the Baltic Sea
is still covered with ice, the Organizing Committee is working full
speed to make the regatta a success and already 13 boats from have
entered the regatta. In addition to the Club, Mr. Meyer and Mr. Fabre
inspected the Lindgren boatyard, where the boats will be launched as
well as the official regatta hotel Scandic Grand Marina. Mr. Fred Meyer
says ”The next event will be a fabulous event knowing that the Finnish
organizers are fully behind us and bearing in mind the 2002 World Cup in
Helsinki, which was the greatest success”. (Mr. Meyer in the photo with
