We hope you will join us for this exciting world record attempt in “Hundraåringarnas Regatta i Mariefred” on Lake Mälaren in Sweden. Our goal is to gather as many centenarian yachts as possible. The oldest boats that have declared they will participate in the race are both from 1880, i.e. 138 years old. The races between the centenarians will be the backbone of the event, but we also welcome newer classic yachts.
