Tall Ships Races Norway , (84 images)|
We have recently visited Fredrikstad in Norway during the Tall Ships Races event. Each summer usually between 70 and 100 vessels from 20 or more countries, crewed by some 4,000 or so young people from over 30 countries worldwide, take part in The Tall Ships' Races in Europe. Organised by Sail Training International, this unique event combines four days of activities in each port with racing or cruising-in-company between ports. During the race series the young crews get the chance to gain experience by sailing with their contemporaries from other countries while facing the physical and emotional challenges that only the ocean can provide. See the pictures we took walking the pieres in Fredrikstad.
