New record at MidsummerSail!

Sailing yacht PURE crosses the Baltic Sea in record time!


Maike and Uwe Prieß crossed the finish line of the MidsummerSail 2019 at 06.38 hours on June 27th. 

They set a new MidsummerSail record with their sailing yacht PURE, a 40-foot Judel / Vrolijk One Off, 

It took them 5 days, 17 hours, 38 minutes, 46 seconds to sail from the southernmost point to the northernmost point of the Baltic Sea.

The Swedish town of Töre where the finish line is will be celebrating the successful sailors’ arrival with a Midsummer Harbour party on Saturday the 29th of June, where the awards ceremony will be held.

Meanwhile, eight more crews are fighting to reach the finish and the magically endless days of the Scandinavian Midsummer.


The race can be followed on the tracker:
