25th Rum - Regatta Flensburg 2004

storm-lashed Gaff rigged sailing ship
Rumregatta - the 25th times! A quarter century ago the first regatta started with about 20 sailing ships. This time at least 140 ships took place. The last year approved theme caribbean was used again when the crews went through the town Flensburg in a parade.

Seen from my point of view this finitely was a regatta with wind, unfortunately to much wind for some of the ships. The weather changed from sunny to stormy with short hailstorms. On board of the "Weissenhaus" we often reciprocally confirmed: "It is still today and the same day!" The weather was enough for tree further days. And it was not easy for me to choose the photos for this website.
