Pure happiness. That’s what happens when a group of Blockheads gets a chance to sail on a VO65 that raced in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018.

Harken Blockheads Polska and Sailing Poland came together to give these young sailors the chance to steer, grind, sail, and experience this incredible boat on Gdańsk Bay. The kids also got the chance to learn from Sailing Poland’s skipper Maciej Marczewski and two Olympic 49er teams: Przybytek & Kołodziński and Buksak & Wierzbicki.

Harken Blockheads Day 2020 was a memory they will never forget!
