16 July - 22 July 2015
Embark on a journey of discovery along the Norwegian fjords. You’ll join the Vega Gamleby for the Cruise in Company of the Tall Ships Races 2015. Together with the rest of the fleet you’ll start off at the Norwegian port of Alesund, making stops along the way. Visit quaint harbours, admire the rugged coastline, go for a swim in a 1000 meter deep inlet, or perhaps enjoy a beach barbecue? along the way Vega Gamleby will set her own course for Skarhamn, a small harbour town north of Goteborg. You’ll be part of life on deck, helping to navigate the ship through fjords and between islands. The Fjords were a particular highlight for trainees and crew during the Tall Ships Races 2014 and we are looking forward to visiting them again. Open to Windseekers age 15 and up.
Ålesund is once again host port for The Tall Ships Races in 2015. Ålesund harboured the event for the first time in 2001, in an intimate harbour amongst beautiful fjords, mountains and islands. Consisting out of seven islands, Ålesund is a modern city. In 1904 the city, once built largely of wood, was completely burned down by a sea of flames. After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt in stone, brick, and mortar in Jugendstil.
Skarhamn, Sweden is the seat of the Tjorn Municipality, Vastra Gotaland County. Well known for its yachting activities and the Nordic Watercolor Museum (Akvarellmuseet). There is a unique quality of light on the island of Tjörn, that inspired several late 19th century painters. Its West Coast is scattered with typical fishing villages. Red-painted boat sheds stand in rows along the port, and labyrinthine streets wind between the tightly-packed white houses.
"A very fun, refreshing but also a very challenging trip that really moves your comfort zones."
