Here are the last photos, plus a video clip, from Sunday 23rd July. Next year, 2018, the Tall Ships Races will sail from UK to Denmark to Norway and the Netherlands.

More Tall Ships photon. The parade of sails was so nice. The ships slowly glided pass by the shores of Ruissalo. They blew their horns, the crew waved their goodbye and all of us thousands and thousands cheered, waved and applauded back to every ship. I’m still working on editing more photos 😉

From Kotka the ships sailed to Turku for a four day stay from Thursday 20th to Sunday 23rd. The weather was warm and nice. The parade of sails took place from about 2 pm, when the first ships sailed down the Aura river towards Airisto, to 6 pm. Next they will be in Klaipeda in Lithuania.  I was on my feet for 8 hours ! My goodness my back and feet hurt. But, it was so much worth it 😀 I, of course, also this time took way too many photos. Here are a few from the festival area along side the river. I will post more soon from the parade of sails.
