Rumregatta Flensburg 2017
Rumregatta Flensburg 2017 - The largest gaff rigged sailing competition in Northern Europe!
25th May 2017
28th May 2017
This quite spectacular weekend sees the inner fjord of Flensburg welcome over 100 traditional sailing vessels for a regatta like no other. We hear that second prize is traditionally a 3-litre bottle of rum, a quite interesting twist that sees competitors trying their best not to come in first!
If you’re staying on dry land there’s still just as much fun to be had, with a fantastic folk festival so good it sees visitors attend in the tens of thousands!
Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
