4 July 2017. The ships are ready to sail from the harbor in Aalborg, and move into position across from the town’s center, waiting for the start signal.
My views of this event were increased by taking photos of the ships as they approached then passed through the first obstacle, the Railway Bridge ( as seen from the pedestrian walkway).
The start signal was sounded around 10am and the ships, with filled sails, moved along the Limfjord Canal towards the open sea, The Kattegat.
Next stop: Sweden
Alas, I won’t be accompanying them, other than being an armchair observer, but not all of us are destined to sail on the seven seas, after all……
