You have to be on board not later than at 7:30 AM on the day of departure.Travelling in a fairy tale starts with the most beautiful (according to the opinion of country residents and Times magazine) town of Norway where lies a way to the wonderful Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Aalesund is a start point for the second stage of Tall Ships Races regatta, Cruise in Company. This means that dozens and hundreds of sailing ships driven by common emotions and aspirations will say goodbye to the town, cast off the lines and spread their snow-white wings over the waters of the North Sea. 400 miles voyage includes acquaintance with other Norwegian cities. The crews have a closer opportunity to share Scandinavian culture and nature.
Kristiansand which is the last town of this stage will welcome sailing ships with open arms as is usual in the Tall Ships Races. It's always concerts and competitions, it’s ships and people, it’s a place where you can buy anything and everything, it's time when you can feel and see the pulse of life! And, of course, the main thing is the sails. Sails parade, fireworks and cannon shots will persuade the participants of these events that this fairy tale is real.
