Tomidi:
Aalborg (DK) - Bremerhaven (DE)

03 August - 14 August 2015

Go on a Journey across the Baltic Sea, with the magnificent fast yacht Tomidi. If you’re a true Windseeker, you’ll feel right at home on this fast 57 foot former Whitbread racer. Together with the crew you will steer the ship along the coasts of Denmark, Sweden, and Germany. And who knows where else you might end up? There is ample time to make a few stops along the way, so be prepared to discover beautiful bays and quaint port towns, or go for a swim wherever you please. While on board, the crew will show you all you need to know to steer the ship. You’ll be hoisting, jibing, and navigating like a professional yachty in no time! You will arrive in Bremerhaven in time to participate in the Sail festival that’s being held there. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

The final leg of the Tall Ships Races 2015 will finish in the grand port of Aalborg. Aalborg has had a love affair with The Tall Ships Races since 1999, when the city hosted the event for the first time. Aalborg is situated at the Liim Fiord where it was founded by Vikings over 1000 years ago. Today Aalborg is a modern city with visible historic roots. Its theatres, symphony orchestra, performance venues, and museums, make Aalborg a great place to wind down after an exhilarating Sail adventure.

Bremerhaven is one of the most important German ports, playing a crucial role in Germany's trade. The town was founded in 1827, but settlements in the vicinity were settled as early as the 12th century. The main attractions for tourists are found at the Havenwelten and include the German Emigration Center and the German Maritime Museum, featuring the Hansekogge, a vintage cog dating from 1380, excavated in Bremen in 1962, and the historical harbour with a number of museum ships.
