Tall Ships Races @ Helsinki

Once a year there is a Tall Ships Race set out for sail in European waters consisting of more than 100 huge ships designed "the old fashion way". The rule is that 50% of the crew has to be within the age of 15-25 years old to promote sailing for young people. Ships look great and it's a great chance for you who are young and want to go and experience something new. They set sail in Helsinki 17.7-20.7 this year and next stop was Latvia.

 Suddenly the sky went dark and rain started pouring down, the light look sorta gloomy though

 Wonder how it is to sail with 5 masts
