Anyone heard of it before?
In this race, various sailing ships join in a both friendly and comepition race. It's every year. This year it started from Belfast in Ireland. Then they came to Ålesund, here in Norway. After visiting Ålesund, they go to Måløy and then Kristiansand (also Norwegian places). The last town will be Aalborg in Denmark.
They stayed in Ålesund for about 4 days. There were so many various sailing ships, from huge ones to small ones. Also the two biggest (longest) sailingships in the world, Sedov and Mir, were there. Both are from Russia. I went onboard both of them to have a look around. There were also ships from UK, Ireland, Scotland, Brazil, Ecuador, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, France, Poland, Netherlands, Spain, Latvia and Estonia. And Norwegian ones.
Soo many sailingships to visit and look at..
I don't know why, but old, big sailing ships fascinate me. All since it was anounced that the ships would come to Ålesund, I've been so excited and so been looking forward to it. And now that I've been there, I feel so happy. ^^
How are you guys? I hope you have a nice summer. c:
