Rowing for Herring

ROW TO CLEAN THE BALTIC SEA IN HELSINKI ON SUNDAY 4.10.2020

 

The arrangements for the eighth Rowing for the Baltic Herring are going on in full speed. We closely follow the instructions of health experts, authorities and the instructions of the City of Helsinki regarding the organizing of events concerning the pandemic situation in Finland.

 

 

Rotarians invite you to save the Baltic Sea!

 

The Rowing for Baltic Herring event promotes the cleaning of local river and stream waters as well as the Baltic Sea itself. In conjunction with the opening of the annual Helsinki Baltic Herring Market on Sunday 4.10.2020, long boats are rowed from Finlandia Hall on Töölö Bay to the Market Square.

A Baltic Sea Seminar will be held onboard the Viking Mariella at the Katajanokka terminal immediately following the rowing event and lunch.

The aim of the Rowing for Herring, Herring Seminar, and Herring Cruise events is to raise funds for the Water Protection Association of the River Vantaa and Helsinki Region. These donations will help increase the amount of continuous water quality measurements in the River Vantaa drainage area’s streams and rivers.

 

RECREATIONAL RELAXATION WHILE DOING GOOD

We challenge everyone, companies and communities alike. Rowing for Baltic Herring is a recreational event giving relaxation and exercise. It represents a good opportunity to strengthen togetherness and to influence society towards a better tomorrow.
