The Tall Ships Races Fredrikstad Norway 2019 "part 3"

in #sailboats5 years ago

info is from fredrikstad municipality, norway

On July 11th-14th, Fredrikstad will once again host the world’s largest regatta for sail ships. About 2500 young sailors between the ages of 15-25 will join more than 75 sail ships from 25 different countries.

The regatta and the event Tall Ships Races in owned by Sail Training International, whose main goal is to increase international comradery and understanding between youths. The project involves youth from all corners of the world, who take part in a community across nationality, culture and religion, and who will challenge themselves and others by using the sea and sailing as a teaching arena. This work led Sail Training International to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. The municipality has cooperated with Rotary in sending young sailors to The Tall Ships Races across the globe since 2005.

In 2018 and in 2019, Fredrikstad will recruit 160 sail trainees. They will also receive training courses in management and teamwork, training in conflict management and dialogue, in addition to other current societal topics that are added to seminar series.

More photos will soon be in part 4


Always beautiful photos. The ship is very big and luxurious.
i just comment with these words.

display masts stand firm
Look into the eyes of the captain who never dims
the sign is ready to cross the vast ocean
along the entire waters and oceans

The towering screen post was about to reach the clouds
the sailors continued to shout
uplifting to immediately lift the anchor
lower the screen and become a sailor

but now you're leaning on the port
looking for supplies for a trip that is no longer short
challenge the ocean wave
avoid the storm looking safe
not out of fear, dear
we choose that path here
we want to bring everything safely
in order to return happily

Thank you @xpilar
Warm regard from Indonesia
