On that day, August 8, the boat was sailing near Greenland and CJ Kask sent an incredible footage from there to celebrate the opening of the Alexela ORC Worlds in Tallinn.

The Vice President of the Alexela Group, Marti Hääl, stated that Alexela has supported sailing for its entire 30-year history since maritime culture was in the childhood upbringing of its owners. "Sailing is an excellent sport and supporting it on different levels – from children starting in the Optimist class to offshore sailing – is taken to heart at Alexela.”
