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.

Very beautiful photos.
I am so impressed with the people in your city. They carefully pay attention to the well-developed modes of water transportation and can produce maximum service.
My shadow is that while still using a sailboat exploring the Atlantic ocean can even penetrate the Bahamas islands as done by Columbus, or furthermore is the Viking people who also roamed the vast ocean to get to North America.
One courage as a nation that develops sea transportation so that it can touch all regions.
Then the development of technology is progressing until the ship becomes more effective in transporting cargo and driving at maximum speed.
And now I'm reading from your post about ship racing. One chance is certainly not all time can be witnessed. An event which break the region and religion, break the difference of nation and tribes. All participant will have a great experience
Thank you @xpilar for giving interesting discourses and posts.
Warm regard from Indonesia

I imagine it is a sensational event, the sailboats and the boats that show are very large, striking and majestic. I wait for part II to continue delighting.

Nice to see these classic boats still on the sea and in such beautiful scenery too, @xpilar!

What's the maximum speed of this ship?

@xpilar, It will not be wrong if we will call this race as Giant Race. And definitely watching this event live would be breathtaking experience. Hope that you are enjoying it.
