Tall Ships Race 2011 Shetland - Fair Isle Harbour - North Haven

Traditional ship from Norway with a young Fair Islander as a member of the crew.

Fair Isle is the 2nd busiest international port in Shetland.
Surpassed only by Lerwick, most private yachts sailing between Shetland & Orkney stop to explore our Fair Isle. I have seen flags flown aboard yachts from all over the world... Scotland, England, Norway, Finland, Germany, France, Spain, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. even sea-less Switzerland.

Fair Isle is an official free harbor for the Tall Ships Race 2011 this Summer in Shetland.
The Islanders are planing a Beach Party and I think it unwise to miss it.

The one of the busiest days I have ever seen the "Havens"
I have seen 16-18 private yachts moored one evening last summer

and there is sand!
