The map below shows the course areas and the routes to take to get to the Course area C. To the W-NW of the W mark on Course area C there is a rock that may be risky for a 49er. We will mark it with buoys before racing start.
Note that to get to Course area C boats have to cross a fairway used by Tallinn ferries and other large ships. Care must be taken when crossing it and the organisers will supervise that area when needed.
When sailing to the area, you need to sail round the red mark buoy at the northern tip of Melkki island. The shallow area to the North of that mark extends to the NW of the mark as can be seen on a chart. You are also advised not to sail too close to the Lauttasaari island.
The courses will be laid so as to ensure that there is enough navigable water on all sides of the leeward marks and the starting line. It is useful, however, to study the area on the chart.
