34. Rumregatta Flensburg 2013

My first highlight in each season has been the Rumregatta in Flensburg since many years. Here the gaff rigged sailing ships of the German-Danish region meet to have a joined sailing event together. This year the big Danish sailing ships "Fulton", "Brita Leth", "Martha" and "Lilla Dan" have been impressive.

With high attitudes there is a competion for smaller boats organised one day before. Then the ships arrive in Flensburg, often coming from Sonderburg. The Flensburg Fjord Regatta between Sonderburg and Flensburg is challenged since 2008 and meanwhile belongs to the tradition.

In the habour of Flensburg the restoration project of H.F.42 "Providentia" was presented and the crew asked for public support.

Thank you very much to all participants and to the crew of the "Gesine" and the association Historischer Hafen Flensburg.
