The dates for the 2024 edition of the raid in the Stockholm Archipelago are set to 22nd to 25th of August. It will be a raid with 4 full days of sailing and start and finish in Saltsjöbaden close to Stockholm. The course will go through the Central and Northern parts of the Stockholm Archipelago with base camps on the islands of Sandhamn/Lökholmen, Lidö (last time in 2005) and Nässlingen.

Illustrative course: (sailed way would be at least 20% longer)

An extra effort will be made to get more top female and youth sailors to join. Maximum 30 boats with the aim to have women and/or youth sailors onboard at least 10 of these boats.

For the 25th anniversary in August 2025 the plan is to do a 5 day raid in the spirit of the original Archipelago Raid. The venue will be Åland and/or Stockholm Archipelagos and it will be a more physically demanding raid with more sailing per day, maybe some paddling allowed, possibly sleeping in tents to allow more flexibility. Maximum 25 teams for safety and logistical reasons. Less experienced F18 sailors are recommended to do the 2024 edition as a qualifier.
