Aura has two home ports...

Homeport at Skifferholmen (Liuskasaari) in Helsinki that is the harbour of HSS Yacht Club and a seaport in the archipelago of Uusikaupunki on the SW coast of Finland. The Yacht Club Helsingfors Segelsällskap, founded in 1893, is the second oldest Yacht Club in Helsinki. Since 1896 the small island Skifferholmen has been the habitat for HSS and its members. The island and the harbour of HSS is located in front of Kaivopuisto, with regular connection with the shuttle vessel of the Yacht Club. Our home port is an official guest harbour and the marina has good facilities on the island. The restaurant in connection with the marina is of high standard, a nice place for the members to nourish and refresh themselves in between boating. Skifferholmen with its facilities is a true oasis close to the centre of Helsinki. The web site of the Yacht Club http://www.hss-segel.fi
