The Tall Ships Races 2019 " traveling from Fredrikstad, Norway"


info is from fredrikstad municipality, norway

On July 11th-14th, Fredrikstad will once again host the world’s largest regatta for sail ships. About 2500 young sailors between the ages of 15-25 will join more than 75 sail ships from 25 different countries.

The regatta and the event Tall Ships Races in owned by Sail Training International, whose main goal is to increase international comradery and understanding between youths. The project involves youth from all corners of the world, who take part in a community across nationality, culture and religion, and who will challenge themselves and others by using the sea and sailing as a teaching arena. This work led Sail Training International to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. The municipality has cooperated with Rotary in sending young sailors to The Tall Ships Races across the globe since 2005.

In 2018 and in 2019, Fredrikstad will recruit 160 sail trainees. They will also receive training courses in management and teamwork, training in conflict management and dialogue, in addition to other current societal topics that are added to seminar series.

Of course happiness covers all people. With 9500 visitors and the excitement generated can move economic and cultural values. And what is equally important is friendship between nations. One symbol of courage in navigating the ocean. And can share stories with fellow sailors or captain.
One sweet relationship that we deserve to appreciate. And Fredrickstad is able to unite various cultures in one event.

I just add with these words
< i> A sturdy boat strap
will always be ready
not just to ship the boat
but he will bind friendship

see the ship's children at the top of the pillar
their eyes will be very alert
high spirits and full of motivation
become a cadet and ready to work with passion

don't you see just a human line
see there is a heart that shakes each other
no longer there is me, you or him
everyone merges into us in a team

we are one being one power
not scattered and disappeared
we will still be here
until all emotion and shed tears

Thank you @xpilar
Warm regard from Indonesia

Interesante los cursos de capacitación que recibirán esos jóvenes en cuanto a temas sociales, eso es predominante en lo que a juventud se refiere, ya que en esos atesorados años la motivación es fundamental.Muy hermosa esta exposision de barcos.Felicitaciones.
