I promised some more photos from The Tall Ships Races in Bergen 2014. Here they are leaving in amid thunder and rain - the first rain for a very long time. Heading the fleet is Bergen's own "Statsraad Lehmkuhl".
Here is "Statsraad Lehmkuhl" accompanied by the Dutch "Gulden Leeuw".
"Statsraad Lehmkuhl" in lone splendour.
"Gulden Leeuw" got some technical problems and had to return to port. It is passed by a Dutch colleague.
The Danish full rigged ship ship "Georg Stage".
The Norwegian full rigged ship "Sørlandet"
The Norwegian full rigged ship "Christian Radich" and a Swedish rwo-masted vessel.
And finally three ships that all had got their sails up and making a colourful exit.

Regarding Blogger Plus
This is a Bloger Plus free zone. I'm sorry, but comments without a proper"return" address can't be answered - I just will not be admitted. And (among other things), I can't stand the "pushy" tactics of Google.
I have it!
Policy on Awards
I have like most other bloggers received a number of Awards during the time I have been blogging. In the process of cleaning up my blog I have moved them to a separate post. If I should receive any more they will be added at the end of this post. I have received them in the spirit they have been given and are grateful for them all. I will continue to do so, but I will not pass them on.
