The 606 is a 6 meter log keelboat that is sailed by two persons. Most 606:es were builf during the seventies. In 1992 the class was reconstructed and the boat was equipped with "double bottom" which makes the boat self bailing and safer because of the increased float volume. In a total 650 boats are build, most of them in Sweden. Large competitive fleets are sailing in Finland and Denmark as well. It is a perfect training boat for fleet racing and many of he top sailors in Finland participate in 606 races. The sailiors från Mariehamn, ÅSS, are renowned. In Helsinki there are active fleets at HSS, NJK and BS.
