A squadron is a joint sailing where several boats or ships participate. It’s not a race, the goal is to try new routes and ports, as well as enjoy eachothers company!
Albanus’ squadron 2021 will start on July 14th in Turku. It is aimed at youths, mainly between 15 and 25 years of age.
The trip will go through the Åland and Turku archipelago, and take breaks where it fits the participating vessels. The goal is to sail as much as possible, and the overnight berthing options will be decided together with all participants.
