Appetizers will be served on the way to the island of Loistokari, which takes approximately an hour. At the island, a dinner buffet with a variety of homemade smoked fish, salads and other specialities will follow. The delegates will have the opportunity to network as they enjoy sailing in the impressive archipelago in the bright light of the Nordic summer night.
