Tall Ships Race 2013

14 Jul

Today I’m posting from the island of Utö. There IS a connection to Helsinki. Read on and all will be revealed!

The last time I was on the island of Utö it was 26-27th July 2009. We came to see the Tall Ships leaving Turku (Utö) heading for Klaipéda (Lithuania). If you have never seen ‘Tall Ships’ in action I recommend that you track down some footage. Youtube has an abundance! These ships are truly magnificent 🙂

The Talls Ships Race is an annual event for Tall Ships. Every fourth year the race is conducted in Baltic Waters and it will be Helsinki’s turn in 2013. Helsinki will be the finishing point for the first leg of the race from Århus (Denmark) to Helsinki.

So from 17 – 20 July 2013 the Tall Ships will be in Helsinki. As soon as I have more information I’ll be sharing it with you. Guaranteed there will be something to share closer to the date!

Meanwhile if you are ever on Utö, please take advantage of the island hospitality offered by Hanna’s Horisont. Here is one link which includes plenty of Utö information. You can also find her on Facebook.
