About a hundred of big sailing ships came to Helsinki for the tall ships races 2013. The opportunity to have a festival at Hietalahti, music, food and ship visits. Particularly noticed was the Mexican ship, with all the sailors busy to take phone numbers of local girls. Well after their arrival, with about fifty men in the masts, playing music, they got famous here.
Michal, Tuisku and me went to Pihlajasaari by kayak to see them going away. A long show as they went one after another. The sea was absolutely full of boats of all kind watching this unique event.
Seeing all this ships going away was quite strong and I have nothing else in mind than the idea of going for a sailing trip! Let's see.
