Tall Ships Races 2019: Cruise in Company. This journey will start in charming Norwegian town of Fredrikstad, where you will spend the first night on board and admire a fireworks display! The following day you will leave port in a Parade of Sail, along with dozens of other vessels, with thousands of spectators cheering from the shores. The Cruise in Company is a more relaxed leg of the Tall Ships Races, which will give you the time to take in famously beautiful Norwegian fjords on your way to Bergen. There you will spend two days enjoying the atmosphere of a sailing festival and the events only for the crews!
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!
