At Helsingfors Segelsällskap we feel strongly for sharing the passion for sailing

It has long been our pleasure to welcome members of other like minded clubs into our house, and our privilege to enjoy their hospitality in turn. HSS Board is happy to establish a network of formal reciprocal arrangements with the most agreeable and dynamic yacht clubs abroad.

We are open to suggestions from “matching couples” of yacht clubs with a focus on youth sailing & training, high class competitive sailing, referee exchange, classic fleets, ocean & archipelago cruising and Corinthian sailing.

HSS is one of the most distinguished yacht clubs in Finland. It was founded well over 100 years ago, in 1893 and have about 1200 members. Our members represent a wide scale of the population of the Helsinki sailing society with a distinguished fleet of sailing boats from various dinghies to beautiful classic 6 and 8mR’s and modern long-distance cruisers.

HSS is located on it´s own club island with a sheltered natural harbor at the southernmost tip of the Helsinki downtown. The island is reached in five minutes by our ferry, at a short walking distance from the City Center.  Helsinki airport is reached by taxi within 30-40 minutes with flights all over the world on a daily basis.

We proudly present our 10th edition of the Classic Yacht Symposium. Our theme is “Design and Desire in Time to Come”. We will take a deep dive into the future of classic yachts and the classic yachts of the future: We discuss evolving aesthetics, design principles, sailors and owners of the future. By whom and how might they be built? Who will sail, own and enjoy the classics in times to come?
