This year, the Tour of Funen celebrates its 35th anniversary. Give the ships a festive reception when they arrive at the dierent harbours on the tour – or go on the tour yourself! Joining does not require any training or qualifications, and everyone is welcome. ONE-DAY TRIP Two of the schooners in the Tour of Funen field – Fulton and Fiona – oer you the opportunity of joining the tour for one day. Sign on in the morning; participate in the day’s voyage; eat lunch on board, and sign o when the field arrives at the next harbour the same afternoon. The price for a one-day trip is 900 DKK, which includes breakfast at the harbour before embarking, and lunch aboard the ship. JOIN A SHIP FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK Some of the ships in the Tour of Funen field can be boarded for an entire week. Everyone participates with the on board chores - being part of the unity on the ship is an amazing experience, and soon, guests are just as obsessed with the race as the regular crew. However, first and foremost, it is a friendly race. A highlight of the race are evenings spent at the harbour enjoying great company and good food. The price for the full week is 5-6,000 DKK, which includes all meals, except drinks. FESTIVE FINISH IN SVENDBORG The traditional ending of the tour takes place on the Friday of week 30 (this year it’s 28 July) when the ships arrive in Svendborg. The day is filled with activities for the whole family at the Maritime Centre warehouse. It is fascinating to watch the crews dock the ships simultaneously, and afterwards, you get the chance to go on board some of the ships. In the evening, the ships’ crews and guests – around 400 people in total – eat dinner, celebrate the finish, and crown the winners of this year’s friendly race.
