The President of the Republic at the opening of the Baltic Sea Islands Youth Sports Games In Kärdla, July 26, 2006

Dear young sportsmen,
Dear guests!

I am sincerely happy that you, the representatives of seven Baltic Sea islands, are going to measure yourself and pit your strength against each other, and will find out who is the fastest, most skilful and best in fair play and sportsmanship. In our disturbed, controversial and at times alarming world, sports offers us moments of exaltation, expresses joy of life and unites and joins people.

Dear young people,

Here, in hospitable Hiiumaa, you are ambassadors of your home island; you represent its peculiarities, customs and culture. Fulfil your mission with pride. I wish you memorable meetings, flush of victory, and ability to lose with dignity,

I declare the Baltic Sea Islands Youth Sports Games open.
