The World's Finest Rowing Boats
Whitehall at RAID Finland presents a sailing rowing adventure travel documentary as Harold Aune and Marie Hutchinson joing 70 sailores from 14 countries racing classic small boats under oar and sail power through finland's stunning archipelago .


It was a blast racing through Finland's southwest archipelago under oar power and sail with twenty-one boats all under 22 feet long with crews hailing from all over the world. The boats themselves were as varied as their crews but all were classics of one design or another. The German and Dutch sailors seemed to favor beautiful wooden Norwegian Fearings while the Hawaiians sailed a Shetland Islands Yole, one of two in the Raid. There were two Whitehall Spirits. The " Victoria" a 14' sailing model, sailed by the French team, Bertrand and Anne Chazarene was also the smallest boat in the fleet. The other was our Canadian team entry, a Whitehall Spirit 17 Expedition model.This is the content.It was a blast racing through Finland's southwest archipelago under oar power and sail with twenty-one boats all under 22 feet long with crews hailing from all over the world.
