Dear Escapists, thank you for an incredible Lyø Escape 2023. We are so happy that you made it to our little island, that we had propper wind, that we had oysters and bobbles on the pier, that we had a music festival going into the night and early morning.
We hope to see you all again in 2024 - as always in the third weekend of August.
With a 3rd place in race I and a 2nd in race II Dirk Feldhusen took the overall win in Lyø Escape 2023 with his Beneteau First 40.7 Now or Never. Congratulations!
