Two new participants at Tall Ships Races Harlingen
There are two new participating ships in the Tall Ships Races Harlingen! Georg Stage and Roald Amundsen have applied. These beautiful tall ships will sail from Esbjerg to Harlingen from 10th July with trainees on board. On 14th July they sail into Harlingen during the impressive sail in. The tall ships in Harlingen can be admired until 17th July.
The Danish training ship Georg Stage was built in 1934 in Frederikshavn. This three-master is one of the few to have competed in both the first race in 1956 and the 50th anniversary in 2006.
Roald Amundsen is a tall ship with a mission. The ship is run entirely by volunteers. Their goal? Training and passing on traditional seamanship. The ship was built in 1952 in Roblau/Elbe as a logger with large tanks on board. In 1992 Roald Amundsen was converted into a brig and serves as a training ship.
