A Victory For Norway

Sail Training International, the organisation behind The Tall Ships Races 2011 series, officially announced the results of Race One at a prize giving ceremony in Greenock today.  It was Norwegian vessel Christian Radich who took first in class and first overall making a crew of 115 captained by Clas Jagdum, extremely happy.

The prize giving ceremony followed a vibrant and colourful crew parade of 1800 trainees from 14 different countries through the streets of Greenock ending at the Town Hall.

Polish vessel Dar Szczecina scooped the prize for ‘Best Crew in the Crew Parade.’  Polish crew have also been found regularly entertaining the Greenock crowds throughout the weekend with a host of juggling and dancing acts with the intention of welcoming people to the city of Szczecin, Poland, in 2013. 

All class prizes have been donated by the host ports of The Tall Ships Races 2011: Waterford, Greenock, Lerwick, Stavanger and Halmstad.

Race Director of Sail Training International, Paul Bishop, commented: “On behalf of The Tall Ships Races 2011 Race Committee, I would like to congratulate everyone who took part in Race One from Waterford to Greenock.  It was a challenging and tactical race with the Captains of Christian Radich, Tecla, Black Diamond of Durham and Rona II all earning a very deserved first in class.”

First vessel to cross the finish line was Tomidi from Belgium. See below for official results of Race One of The Tall Ships Races 2011, presented by Szczecin and organised by Sail Training International:
