Tall Ships Races 2019 – Race 2. The last race of 2019 Tall Ships Races will take you from Norway to Denmark in an exciting adventure. You will leave Bergen in a Parade of Sail and make your way to the starting point of the race; from there the competition is on! You will steer the vessel, trim the sails and navigate, all to try and be the first ship to reach the finish line! Finally you will reach port, where great activities will await you, including the award ceremony, Crew Party, Crew Parade and more. Spend your last days on board meeting trainees from other vessels and exchanging your sailing stories before you say goodbye to the trainees and crew – or will it be: “See you next year”?

More service and a complete offer, including a proposal for the return trip to and from the ship; we can arrange this for you at an additional cost of € 50.00

About Tall Ships Races

The Tall Ships Races is a huge event involving Tall Ships, small Ship and yachts. These days the vessels take part in races, Cruise in Company (non-competitive) leg, and maritime festivals in harbours.   The trainees don’t need to have any sailing experience to join, as they will be provided with Sail Training by the crews. They take active part in sailing the vessels, trying to cross the finish line before the others. They learn to steer, navigate, trim the sails and keep lookout for other vessels.   But it’s about more than sailing! In ports, a celebration of international friendships lasts for four days. While the spectators enjoy visiting the ships, listening to concerts and taking in the unique atmosphere of an outdoor family event, the trainees and crews take part in the Crew Parade, Crew Party, competitions and excursions. This is the time to meet people from other vessels and exchange the stories from the high seas!

About Tall Ships Races 2019

In the summer of 2019 the Tall Ships Races will start in Aalborg. From there a fleet of international Tall and Small Ships will sail to Fredrikstad in an exciting race across a number of waypoints. Afterwards the Ships will enjoy a more relaxed Cruise-in-Company leg along the coast of Norway to Bergen. Finally, they will embark on the final race back from Bergen to Aarhus in Denmark.


Bergen

Bergen is the gateway to the Fjords of Norway and a well-established cruise port. It’s an international city packed with history and tradition, a big city with small-town charm and atmosphere. Stroll around old streets and alleyways, and mingle with the crowds at the Fish Market. Saunter along the listed wooden buildings at Bryggen to the old fortress at Bergenhus, or call in at one of Bergen’s museums and galleries. The panoramic views of the city, the fjord and the ocean are breathtaking.

Aarhus

Aarhus is a port on the northeast coast of Jutland, Denmark. One of its main attractions is the open air museum Den Gamle By, where historical buildings from all over Denmark have been relocated. But the 13th century cathedral is also well worth a visit. Aarhus is a relaxed place with enough to see and do, and its city centre is a favourite with Tall Ship crews who visit the city regularly. West of the city you’ll find lakes and forests, perfect for a hike.
