The tall ship, Statsraad Lehmkuhl of Bergen, is one of the biggest and most beautiful tall ships in the world. She is run by a foundation and next year the ship will be host for the two other Norwegian square riggers, Sørlandet and Christian Radich. See picture below. All three ships will lay alongside Bryggen and the dates for the tall ships event will be from 21 – 24 June 2018. We will recreate the picture from the Eurovision contest which was held in Bergen in 1986 and which was the last time the three ships were gathered alongside Bryggen. It will be a magic event for sure!
Thursday 21 June: parade of sail with the three ships entering Bergen followed by hundreds of small boats
Friday 22 June: Conferences and meetings on board the ships on daytime and day cruises in the evening where all ships go out together
Saturday 23 June: Open ship for public on daytime, including maritime activities on board. Day cruises in the evening where all ships go out together and enjoy Mid Summers Eve
There are no other nations in the world who has three so beautiful and well-kept tall ships who all sail and operate full time through the whole year. One of the goals for this gathering is also to put focus on the three Norwegian ships as relevant training ships and as part of our cultural heritage. This gathering will also be a celebration of the foundation of Statsraad Lehmkuhl`s 40 anniversary (not the ship, which is from 1914).
We hope to see you all in Bergen from 21 – 23 June. You will not regret!
