The Tall Ships Races and Maritime Festivals 2017 in Kotka. (part 1 of 3)

 

There’s a lot going on from the 12th of July to the 16th. Parades, concerts, dance, theater, amusement park, many, many festival market stalls, restaurants, fire works and, of course, the ships. We were there on Thursday. Many ships already had arrived. I was so pleased to notice some ships would still arrive on Thursday. Such a wonderful, wonderful day it was. The ships are truly both beautiful and magical.

The race route, this year, is Halmstad, Sweden – Kotka, Finland – Turku, Finland – Klaipeda, Lithuania – Szczecin, Poland.

I will post a few more photos tomorrow and another video clip 😉
