30MILES developed services for lively water tourism in the Eastern Gulf of Finland

The main result of the 30MILES project was the increasement of the service level at the ports in the Eastern Gulf of Finland (Eastern GoF). The result was achieved with several infrastructure investments in the ports, by creating a network for the small ports and a route risk analysis related to boating in GoF. All in all, 12 different ports and 12 project partners from Finland and Estonia were involved in the project. The project increased the safety and accessability of the ports in collaboration with relevant sailing and port safety officials.
