The Venue, Espoo Yacht Club is easy to reach by public transport if you stay nearby or in Helsinki downtown. For those traveling a longer distance each day, it may be easier to rent a car.

Arriving via Helsinki-Vantaa airport, the easiest way to travel by public transport to Helsinki city center and to Espoo is by train and metro. Take the circular train (I or P train) and hop off at Helsinki Central Railway Station. The trains depart every 10-30 minutes depending on the time of the day. To continue to Espoo from Helsinki Cenral Railway Station take a metro to Matinkylä end station. From Matinkylä busses 531 and 531b arrive near the venue. If you arrive or leave at night, check the schedule beforehand here.
