The Baltic 500 Offshore Race is a 1000nm offshore race for single and double-handed Yachts in the Baltic Sea.  A mixture of narrow waters and open sea, combined with local weather phenomena and current that is hard to predict, will constantly challenge every sailors ability in navigation and tactics to the maximum.

Being short-handed means there is no Navigator, no bowman, no trimmer you can rely on – it is all you and your buddy – for days and nights.

In 2019 it was the first edition the race with around 50 yachts at the start.
