Day in Stockholm

Dear participant of ESN Finland’s Pirates of the Baltic Sea,

We regret to inform you that the 18th edition of Pirates of the Baltic Sea (PoBS) will no longer be held during the 29th-31st of March, but will be postponed until Autumn this year, on the 15-17th of November. This decision has been taken as a preventive measure after the outbreaks of COVID-19 and taking into account the advice of the local government authorities regarding travel.
We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause you, and remind you that your health and safety are our priority. The main reason to follow the recent instructions from the authorities is to reduce the number of people at risk of infection.

To minimise the negative consequences of this change of plans and in cooperation with our partner Timetravels, we have decided to fully refund your tickets. Should you have any concerns regarding this, please contact Timetravels Customer Service for assistance.
We want to emphasise that postponing the cruise is a safety measure as well as reassure the importance of remaining calm during this challenging situation. Continue to follow the recommendations of international entities like the WHO and local authorities regarding prevention, and strengthen hygiene practices, especially those concerning hands.

For further updates about the refund process and other relevant information, follow us on our social media channels.
