Hajkutter Festival and Regatta Nysted - Rostock 2015The regatta for these special ships, the so called hajkutters, took already place for the 7th time between Nysted in Denmark and Rostock on the German Baltic Sea. The small city Nysted arranges a nice maritime festival for the crews and visitors coming into the little habour. On the end they fire historic guns for each ship leaving for the regatta. In the last years the wind and weather wasn't that fine for sailing. Following the ships arrived in Rostock usually not sailing. So it came in 2015 too. Just in the middle of the Baltic Sail we had realy nice sunshine but nearly no wind. The regatta was canceled before the ships could reach the finishing line. But before this I could take some photos and a video. The next year I want to see this regatta again.

Hansesail Rostock 2015Without any doubt the Hansesail in Rostock is a strong magnet for sailing ships every year. You can see the ships sailing there when you are on board or even when you are standing on the pier. The Hanse Sail is a great event and maritime fair with a lot of attractions at land too.
