Cruise in Company

Lerwick was the arrival port of the Cruise in Company leg of the Tall Ships Races 2023.

We were very pleased to present a programme of nine Guest Harbours for the 2023 Cruise in Company. Each Guest Harbour is listed below with its own page giving details about the harbour, the community and the facilities available.

Each Guest Harbour had developed a social programme of entertainment and activities, most of which were open to the local community and the ships' crews to join in. This was an excellent opportunity to meet new people and develop international friendships in the true spirit of the Tall Ships Races.

The fleet left Fredrikstad in Norway on 18th July and instead of racing to Lerwick, they had the opportunity to stop at various Guest Harbours on the route to enjoy local hospitality and visit local attractions and landmarks.

This was an excellent opportunity for us to show off other areas of Shetland and Scotland, in addition to the Guest Harbours on the Norwegian coast. We are very pleased to have worked with our Host Port colleagues in Fredrikstad to plan the route and the Cruise in Company Guest Harbours to coordinate the activities and entertainment schedules.
